Reports from 500 towns!

We started 2016 with the 500 town milestone on the horizon.  With a spike of new town reports in the past couple of weeks we are happy to note that we’ve reached the 500 town mark:

  • Maine:  211
  • Massachusetts: 155
  • New Hampshire: 116
  • Rhode Island: 18

My thanks to everyone who have helped us (and continue to help us) document this curious tradition.  A special shout out to Stephen Hoffman who has been scouring news reports for mentions of the canes and forwarding them to me for several years now.

Only 200 more canes to go!

Thanks everyone!
