Because of your hard work, I think every member of our Canton should be able to see something that he or she had a hand in helping with. Some of you, these events would never have happened without. You are to be congratulated for your effort that made our Canton what it is today. Hoobah! These dates are from old domesday seneschal reports. because there is always room for human error, if you know more information about our Canton, or can correct some of the above facts please contact the seneschal by November 30, 1995 when this information will be forwarded to the Kingdom Historian. Thank you.
