John Perrin has been appointed the Bard of the St. Andrew's Society of Winnipeg. John's appointment is effective immediately. As you know, he succeeds the late Dr. Glen Lowther who held this post for some 15 years, until his passing in June.
John has been an active member of the Society for over 20 years and served on the Board in many capacities for most of those years, including a term as Society President from 2012 - 2014. In recent years John, at Glen's request, assisted our late Bard in a number of duties as Bard, so I think John comes to this appointment well-prepared for this role in our Society. John's extensive knowledge of Scottish culture, heritage, history and traditions will serve him and the Society very well.
