Palmer Massachusetts locates its cane after a 50 year absence.

This cane likes to hide.   This is the second time it has been lost for 50 years!

Sarah Longden, who resides in Maine, recently opened a box belonging to her father who was a former Selectman in the Town of Palmer, Massachusetts.  Much to her surprise she found a cane that had been missing since 1952.

In a slightly ironic twist the last recipient of the cane, Daniel Splaine, received it in 1952 – 50 years after it was lost in 1909.   The Palmer Historical Commission is working to keep the cane safe from here forward.
