Boston Post Cane to be awarded, April 27th

The Maynard Board of Selectmen are honoring the tradition of the Boston Post Cane and awarding it to Arlene Cook at their April 27th meeting.  Arlene is 98 years old.

Maynard’s cane was officially retired in 1981 after being lost for over 50 years.  In 1999 Paul Boothroyd  of the Maynard Historical Society restarted the tradition, awarding a certificate in place of the cane.
