THANK YOU for supporting Canterbury-on-the-Lake’s 2018 Special Events. Last year’s events raised more than $48,500 for the Terrace Garden Project. We are looking forward to our 2019 Golf Outing and Gala, both of which will celebrate Canterbury’s 25th year in the Waterford community. Dates and details are coming soon!
