The Canterbury Historical Society Thanks All Who Helped With 2019’s Canterbury Old Home Day on October 12
10/22/2019

Many thanks to everyone who helped out in any way to make 2019 Canterbury Old Home Day on October 12 a fun day for the whole community—including exhibitors, musicians, sponsors, bakers, volunteers, and visitors. The weather was cloudy and cool, but the rain held off and we generated our own warmth.
