On Saturday, June 1, 2019 at 11:00 am Delbert Porter was awarded the Boston Post Cane in front of a standing room only crowd. This tradition is bestowed upon the oldest living resident of Brookline. The event was held at the newly completed Brookline Historical Society Barn, with Del providing his usual comic relief during the ceremony.
Congratulations Del!! After the ceremony, the BHS accepted a generous donation from the Hall family of one of the benches from Tarbell’s Hall.
