POLAND — A Minot resident on the heels of her 100th birthday was awarded the Boston Post Cane during a ceremony Saturday at the Poland Springs Resort. Martha Bartlett officially gained centenarian status on Sept. 25. The real celebration, however, would begin six days later as friends and family from across the country gathered for the first time since before the pandemic, clogging the resort's parking lot with vehicles sporting out-of-state license plates from Massachusetts to Virginia and Illinois.
