Happy New Year to everyone. Here’s a quick update on the Boston Post Cane information clearinghouse: I changed the update policy in 2015 so that we get them posted within a day or so of them arriving and this seems to have worked out well and we’ll continue that practice in 2016. Thank you to everyone who has sent contributions/updates/inquiries about the canes to us. We endeavor to keep all of the information we have on the canes current and available.
We ended 2014 with some status from 458 towns and we added another 26 towns in 2015. Here’s how we’re doing as of the end of 2015:
- Maine: we have updates from 207 towns.
- Massachusetts: we have updates from 150 towns.
- New Hampshire: we have updates from 109 towns.
- Rhode Island: we have updates from 18 towns.
With checkins from 484 towns we are now past the 2/3rds mark (69%) to finding what’s happening with all 700 of the canes, and we appreciate everyone’s contributions. (Just 16 more towns and we’ll hit 500!)
