It is neat to have someone who calls us all to attention and officiate at various city functions. Kenny is the Town Crier for Sidney. Last year on Canada Day the Town Crier led 150th Canada Day activities. So when discussion of my shortcut way of becoming a Canadian Citizen happens I can share that I did say the oath to the Queen. The Town Crier led it before the fireworks last year and so I repeated it.
This year I was lucky enough to get a great seat right at the beginning of the parade. I watched every one lining up and getting ready to start. The fun part was that the Town Crier ringing the bell was how the parade started. There were three different Town Criers ..two from neighboring towns. I think Town Criers are fun.
