The Town of Fairfield recently presented its Boston Post Cane to Mary “Winnie” McCormick, who recently celebrated her 99th birthday. Fairfield continues the time-honored tradition of presenting the Boston Post Cane to its eldest permanent resident. The tradition of the Boston Post Cane dates to 1909 for the oldest living man, and in 1930 the tradition was expanded to include both men and women. The previous holder of the town’s Boston Post Cane was Eileen Gould, who recently passed at the age of 104.
