The American Journal reported on Oct. 3, 1973, that Alma Sabine, a widow, was honored by the Groveville Community Club for her many years of service to the community. She had been a member of Buxton Grange, Pythian Sisters, Eastern Star and Ladies League of the North Congregational Church. She had been a clerk at several stores and worked part time in Stevens Market in Groveville. Lois Haines, treasurer of the community club, presented a memory book of the occasion and a gold pin to Sabine.
