Epping woman reaches century mark

Alice M. Lavoie celebrated her 100th birthday June 21 at the Ernest P. Barka Assisted Living Community in Brentwood.

Forty family members and close friends attended the dinner party, catered by the Kingston 1686 House.

Tom Gauthier, chairman of the Epping Board of Selectman, made a brief presentation, officially recognizing Mrs. Lavoie as the oldest living taxpayer in Epping.

Mrs. Lavoie lived most of her life in Epping, and together with her husband, Edward T. Lavoie, owned and operated Magic Flame Inc., which served the Rockingham County area for more than 38 years.

Mrs. Lavoie attributes her longevity to daily exercise, healthful eating and living life in moderation.
