BOSTON POST CANE NOMINATIONS SOUGHT

Sadly, with the  passing of Willie Nelson the most recent holder of the Boston Post Cane, we are seeking nominations for the oldest resident of Canterbury (who is willing to accept the honor). We have posted the criteria used to select the resident to our website www.canterburyhistory.org. Please feel to contact us if you have questions and especially if you have recommendations

IT IS NOT TOO EARLY!

 It occurs to us that the town should begin thinking about planning for the commemoration of our 300th Birthdaywhich will be celebrated on May 20, 2027. The official date our Charter was signed by Governor John Wentworth, was May 20, 1727. So begin formulating your ideas and thinking about our wonderful history and the town we have become. Surely, there is much to celebrate!
