Mary Allquist, Bow’s oldest resident, presented with Boston Post Cane

On Jan. 22, the Bow Board of Selectmen presented the Boston Post Cane to Mary (May) Allquist, the town of Bow’s oldest resident. Allquist recently celebrated her 97th birthday, and she has been a resident of Bow for 40 years. The town has presented the Boston Post Cane to the town’s most senior resident since 1909. At that time, the now-defunct Boston Post newspaper presented canes to communities in New Hampshire for this purpose. Bow residents are now awarded a replica cane, and the original cane is on display in the Board of Selectmen meeting room. Courtesy of Tonia Lindquist
