John Galt Day “Kirking”

I joined other civic leaders in a kirking in celebration of John Galt Day and our city’s heritage. A kirking is a Scottish ceremonial parade led by a piper as a prelude to a church service recognizing the public service of local leaders and expressing hope for their wisdom. The ceremony was practiced in John Galt’s day in his native Scotland, and years ago, City officials were kirked in Guelph, too. This year’s event was a special combined worship service of the four stone churches of Guelph.  Pictures of the event can be found at:
