    I flew to Sacramento from Manchester NH and went to my son's house in Cameron Park in order to see my granddaughter, Paige Downie, play Anne in the first half of "Anne of Green Gables" in March. She did a marvelous job, and I loved watching it TWICE. Of course I may be prejudice, but I thought she "stole the stage". It was just wonderful! Barbara Downie
