Praise for Canton school music program

Dear Editor: There’s sweet music in Canton now. Last Wednesday night I attended a concert at the high school.

Letter to the Editor: Not another liquor store

Dear Editor: I am writing to voice my surprise about the town’s approval of a very large liquor store in Cobb’s Corner, as reported in the December 1 edition of the Canton Citizen.
