MacGray Headed South
by Bobby Blair 11/17/12
Joan MacGray's service to the town started when the post office was still located across from her work place ...
When Joan MacGray began working at the Central Fire Station in the early 1960's, she was able to walk to work from her 76 Winthrop Street home. Taking a night shift ensured MacGray that she would be home during the day for us kids according to Andy MacGray now a Holliston Police Officer. On Friday at 3 p.m. Joan MacGray would become a member of the last punch bunch ending a career of 48 years as head dispatcher and office manager at the Holliston Fire Department.
The communications line to the department was alive with well wishes to MacGray Friday afternoon. Some sent flowers while other stopped in personally. Retired Police Sgt. David Swinimer stopped by to wish MacGray good luck, as did Phil Robshaw above who himself is the second longest serving member of the department. As for MacGray's plans in retirement -- she's off to Largo, Florida, to live come December 2nd. What will the Chief and Andy do now for supper on Thursday nights?
