Perth Town Crier
Crier Brent McLaren opens the annual “Polar Plunge” on New Years Day.
Criers from across Ontario gathered in front of Town Halls, on Band Stands and street corners, even by water’s edge, to ring in the start of the 150th Anniversary of Canada! For some the celebrations began with large municipal gatherings and continued well into New Year’s Day at the many levies and other festivities.
