We help launch the holiday season with a special visit from none other than Santa & Mrs. Merry Claus—the REAL ones. They will provide some brief insights into Christmas lore and their roles in it, then pose with anyone who wants for pictures suitable as keepsakes, or on your Christmas card. Bring a camera and take pictures of your own, and/or we’ll take them for free and email digital files to you.

Bring the kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, nieces, nephews, and young-at-heart friends of all ages. Help spread the word so other folks bring theirs too. It will be a fun evening.

Please bring along some of your favorite cookies for everyone to share as refreshments.

The Harford Courant on January 26, 2015, quoted Mrs. Merry Claus, aka Dianne Grenier, “Last December Santa and I visited over 50 events including the Governor’s Residence, Gillette’s Castle, a Wolf Pack Hockey game (where I was able to ride on the Zamboni), the Hartford Symphony, The Bushnell, plus several day cares, elderly housing, and the Middlesex Cancer Center. Everywhere we go it brings so much joy to so many. Who wouldn’t love that!”

You’re Invited
Canterbury Historical Society programs are free and the public is warmly invited. Get to know us a little. We think you’ll find us to be a pretty friendly bunch. The business session, which begins at 7:00, rarely lasts more than half an hour. If you want to skip it and just come for the program, plan to arrive about 7:30.

The Canterbury Historical Society’s regular monthly meetings are normally on the second Friday evening of the month, except for July and August, when we take a summer break.
