Thanks to All Who Contributed to the Canterbury Historical Society’s Old Home Day on October 13, 2018
10/14/2018

The morning of Old Home Day dawned cold, wet, and raw, but spirits weren’t dampened by the weather. Dozens of historical reenactors, farmers, pliers of traditional crafts and trades, artists, civic organizations, and other exhibitors prepared to welcome visitors.  As the morning wore on, the sky brightened and the sun peeked through.

We thank all who helped out with Old Home Day—from volunteers to exhibitors, the musicians who performed throughout the day, the Canterbury Lions who cooked and served hot food, and these generous sponsors:

  • Canterbury Historical Society 2018 Old Home Day committee, from left seated: John Baldwin, Emily Logee, Bob Blackard, and Ellen Wilson; standing: Linda Orlomoski, our terrific event chairman Steve Orlomoski, and Amy Orlomoski (missing Bill Kivic and JoAnn Brustolon)
