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.

See the wonderful selection of photos by talented photographer Linda Orlomoski on Facebook.
