Kids of all ages had loads of fun when Santa & Mrs. Claus visited the Green school on November 17, 2018

Check out these photos of the recent visit of Santa and Mrs. Merry Claus to Canterbury’s historic one-room Green district schoolhouse. Both big kids and little kids had big fun. And all those cookies that Mrs. Claus baked and handed out—yum!

Lots of the photos taken that day are bound to end up on family Christmas cards.

Many thanks to the dynamic duo of board member Amy Orlomoski. and the Canterbury Historical Society’s BFF Linda Orlomoski, for arranging this much-anticipated annual event.
