November 19 Claus Visit to the One-Room School, Photos and Recap
12/01/2016

On Saturday, November 19th the Canterbury Historical Society was pleased and honored to welcome Santa and Mrs. Merry Claus to our historic Green District One-Room Schoolhouse for a pre-Thanksgiving/pre-Christmas visit. Mrs. Claus made lots of tasty cookies, and the kids who stopped in had the chance to sit and chat with Santa and Mrs. Claus without the whole rush of, “Hey, get your photo taken and move on!” that sometimes happens at the mall. We think the setting was far more charming than the mall too.

Adults were not only welcome to take as many photos as they wanted but also to have their own pictures taken with the Clauses if they so chose. Special thanks to Mike Kotowski and his accordion for providing some very nice Christmas music to make the day even more special. All in all, it was a fine afternoon for cookies, for Clauses, and for the community.

We hope when we invite Santa and the Mrs. back from the North Pole next year, that even more kids, both young and old, will stop in for a cookie and a good time.

Check out the lovely photos of the visit by talented Canterbury Historical Society board member Linda Orlomoski at this link.
