Grace (Gillin) Machia Celebrates Her 80th Birthday
Grace Machia was pleasantly surprised on Saturday, September 23, 2006 when about 100 friends and family gathered at the Owls Club in St. Albans to celebrate her 80th birthday. The party was put on by Grace's family. Grace & Husband Dalton have lived most of their married life in Fairfax, moving to St. Albans in 1996. In their early years they contracted Charlie Dougherty to build them the small white house located at 1111 Main Street near the center of the village. Grace said, the house was truly small and after their youngest son Tom was born, when they sat down to eat in the tiny kitchen, nobody moved until the meal was done. It was at this time that they purchased the huge brick house on the corner of Hunt & Main Street where they remained for 38 years until 1996. Grace was a hairdresser in those early years and most young girls in Fairfax of that era can safely say that their first encounter with a hairdresser was Grace Machia.

Highlight for album: Rec Park Grand Opening - June 2, 2007
Rec Park Grand Opening - June 2, 2007
I took a bunch of photos at the Rec Park Dedication today, most of them were at the Ducky Race and FBPA Cookout. Weather was actually not bad, although a little cloudy. A couple of snaffoos yesterday at the Rec Park, but those that attended The Ducky Race Event and The BPFA Cookout all seemed to enjoy it. We were lucky that the rain held off. The Ducky Herders, Randy and Kyle Mead, David and Devin Keefe and Frank Wells made handling those canoes so easy. Devin and Kyle were the first ones in their canoe, but seemed to have no problem keeping the canoe from floating on down stream. The finish line was down below Swanson's Nursery, but I didn't make it back there in time. Not sure if Carol Lizotte got any pictures or not, but that may be a photo we missed. Jane Longley and Scott were down there and I forgot to get a picture of them also. Got some photos of the Cookout, and Mike Cain had good intentions about taking one of the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, had his camera not decided to throw itself in standby at an inopportune time. There was supposed to be a large inflatable ball also, but, once again fate stepped in and there was a big slit in it. Lastly, I guess that up here near the Canadian Border, we are not really a Chili Town. Due to a lack of participation, there was no Chili Cook-Off. The final picture I took was of Carol Lizotte, Cathy Larsson and Miles Cahoon, three individuals not unaccustomed to snaffoos in the years they have worked on getting the rec park going. They could probably write a book on the problems they have encountered and overcome. The park was really nice and green and looked great, but again I lacked the energy to go around and take pictures of it all as you could never do it in one shot.
