Boston Post Cane

Representatives from the Historical Society came to the Board of Selectmen's meeting last night, August 12, to promote awareness about the Historical Society, request that members of the local community visit the museum and become involved, and to let people know that they need donations to further continue the Historical Society. Harry Aldrich, Brian Tanguay and Janet Haley wanted to clarify that they are from Templeton’s  Historical Society, a privately owned non-profit entity which does not receive money from the Town, but survives on donations.

Brian Tanguay Trustee brought the attached story about The Boston Post Cane~a very interesting tradition. He asked that one of the Selectmen accompany President Beth Arsenault to present the next cane to the oldest living resident of the Templeton villages.

The museum is open every week on Saturdays from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. and admission is FREE for children under 15 and only $3.00 for Adults. 

Brian and Harry wrote a book about Templeton called Templeton, MA Images of America

You can purchase the book several places, but PLEASE purchase at the museum or from a member, as 100% of the profits go towards supporting the museum, whereas if you purchase elsewhere, only a small portion of the profits come back to the museum.
