Swampy Acre Farm friendsDespite persistent morning rain, the weather couldn’t dampen the spirit of the Canterbury Historical Society’s Old Home Day old-timey fall celebration on October 14 on Canterbury green. Exhibitors, musicians, visitors, and sturdy volunteers soldiered on cheerfully through the showers.

This year a new volunteer, Callie Flynn, took these wonderful photos.

And here’s a link to the flattering article, photos, and video that ran in the Norwich Bulletin the day after Old Home Day—even referring to the event as “Canterbury’s town jewel.”
