I keep trying to keep on top of the submissions, but life just keeps getting in the way. We’re so grateful for all the updates, photographs and stories we receive about the canes and the holders. We may be slow, but we’re careful with every bit of news you send our way.
Current tally: 309 towns
One thoughtful comment
Freedom’s cane is now held by Edward (Ted) Acton who will be 97 in May 2011. Elizabeth Acton was the previous holder until she passed in 2009. Ted and his cane were seen dancing at Freedom ‘s 2010 New Year’s eve town party, and yes, past midnight. Ted is a lifelong AMC member and trip leader and has been an avid skier and kayaker well into his 90’s.
