Family Announcements


John E. Machia, son of the late Edward J. Machia and Marilyn Smart Machia has relocated from his ancestral home of Ware, Ma. to live with his uncle Arthur Machia in Sugar Loaf, NY. in September 2001. "John is a hardworking person who is looking for an atmosphere where there is more opportunity for growth than he could fine in Ware, MA.", said Arthur Machia. "There is no question that there is greater potential for personal and professional growth in this area just north of metropolitian New York City" "John has started a new job in NY state and we continue to help each other out in whatever ways we can. The saying that charity starts at home was never more true than in this case and we could all learn a lesson from that adage."
