The weather cooperated yet one more time to help make the Canterbury Historical Society’s annual Old Home Day on September 19 a fun time for visitors, exhibitors, musicians, and volunteers.
Have a look at these shots by talented photographer Linda Orlomoski, Canterbury Historical Society president. https://lorlomskiphotography.smugmug.com/Events/2015-Canterbury-Old-Home-Day/
The Norwich Bulletin featured articles both before and after Old Home Day.
