BOSTON POST CANE Join the Board of Selectmen as they present resident Bill Plante with the Boston Post Cane. This is sure to be an event filled with history & fun; please join us in the celebration! Wednesday, November 15, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am at the Firefighters Memorial Hall, 3 Morgan Ave, Newbury. The tradition of the Boston Post Cane dates back to Aug. 2, 1909, when Edwin A. Grozier, publisher of the former Boston Post newspaper, gifted 700 gold-headed ebony canes to towns throughout New England. Town leaders were instructed to oldest male resident, compliments of the Boston Post. Although some cities are now in possession of Boston Post Canes, at the time they received them, those cities were towns. Grozier designated the boards of selectmen from the 700 selected communities as the trustees of the cane but the recipient was entitled to keep and use it for the rest of his life or until he moved from town. Canes were distributed in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. In 1930, after considerable controversy, eligibility for the cane was opened to women as well. The Boston Post folded in 1956. Some canes have been lost, stolen, destroyed by accident or sold on eBay, but many towns continue the cane tradition as a way to honor elders in the community and to connect with local history. Selectmen are responsible for making sure the cane always stays in the hands of the oldest citizen.Produced by New York manufacturer J.F. Fradley and Co., the canes were made from ebony shipped from Africa, with an engraved 14-carat gold head.Read more: http://www.townofnewbury. org/node/26943 LECTURE: ALASKA - NOME, DENALI, AND THE KENAI PENINSULA Joppa Flats Education Center offers a monthly lecture series on natural history topics that is free to Mass Audubon members.
