Town Criers expand operations

Today, it was announced that at the Town Crier committee meeting held on January 21, 2014, a decision was
made to increase the number of appearances on St. Augustine’s historic St. George Street. An attempt will
now be made to have volunteers performing duties three days a week, instead of once a week.

The Town Criers are a committee of the Saint Augustine Tea Party who have been engaging the public for nearly 3 years in the historic district. [See “A look at Town Crier’s history” in this publication August 26, 2013]

Increased media exposure reason for the expansion
Town Crier’s activities last week sent to 252,977 people across the country

Increased media exposure was cited as the reason for the increase in activities. The labors of several Town Criers on January 17, 2014, resulted in a series of articles being written for this report. The series of articles, with attending photographs, were then posted on several social networks. The articles moved ‘to the head of the class’ as they say. They were featured and got national distribution. It is estimated the Town Crier’s activities were sent to 252,977 people. “Not too shabby for a handful of people. This does not count our normal distribution,” a Town Crier said.
