Bicentennial Kick-off Fundraiser
Pre-Super Bowl Party
Canton’s Bicentennial Fundraiser and Pre-Super Bowl party held Feb. 5, 2017 collected $1,800 toward the town’s bicentennial celebration in 2021.
About 60 people attended the event, where they enjoyed food from local organizations, including delicious cupcakes from Region 9 School of Applied Technology Culinary Arts’ program, along with trivia games and door prizes.
Bicentennial committee members Kathy Walker, Phyllis Ouellette, Loretta Blancato, Julie Martin, Liz Rothrock, and Peg McCluskey worked for months in preparation for this event.
Members plan to hold more fundraisers between now and 2021. The committee’s goal is to match the funds appropriated by the town, as well as to raise funds to conserve and preserve the town’s vital record books, which document the incorporation of the town.
