Craig started the Tri-town (Boxford, Topsfield, and Middleton) educational school days to educate children in the area about agriculture. He also served as the Draft Horse Chairperson for many years. Al passed away in 2019, but will leave behind his legacy and lifelong dedication at Topfield Fair for many years to come.
