Boston Post Cane

 The latest  recipient of the Boston Post Cane is M. Ellen Miliken.    She 

was born 97 years ago in Parsonsfield, ME.  She moved to Porter in 1981 and has lived here ever since.  She worked most of her life doing various jobs such as babysitting, working in the apple orchards, rock picking for Manuel Stacey, and anything else that needed to be done.  She and her husband raised four children, Ruth, Faye, Marie, and Richard. She has eight grandchildren, six great grandchildren and one great great grandchild with two more on the way. She still lives by herself in her home in Porter. Amazing.
