Some buildings that Dot’s construction company built for the Northern Maine Fair were the Forum, the eatery, the restrooms, and the exhibition building. She liked the Forum the best because it was one of her larger projects. She had a subcontractor do the refrigeration and in thanks they gave her a trip to the Bahamas. At the busiest time, the forum had thirty men working on it.

One thing that has changed tremendously was during the fair there were baseball games in the infield. The teams were made up of only boys, but the girls could cheer for them. The Presque Isle boys were named the Indians, but Dorothy cheered for the boys from Robinson. She liked the boys from there.
