    Anita Fox moved to Columbia in 1969 after visiting the New Town on several occasions.  She recalls the Exhibit Center’s tours and watching the area grow from a country setting of 4,000 residents to a bustling suburb.  Her many community activities are discussed, which include many firsts for Columbia, as well as her "on the side" chocolate business, Cordially Yours.

    Alfred and Mary Bracey have felt a sense of community in Columbia, ever since they moved there over 30 years ago.  Maybe that is why, even after retiring from their jobs, they do not want to live anywhere else.  The married couple talk about some of the places they have seen being built in town, as well as, some of the social and community groups they enjoy.
