The Town Crier

To provide announcements to everyone in the village, they have a man designated as town crier; he takes this job very seriously and is proud of the cowbell he smacks twice before calling out each announcement (many, many times around the village). For example, in the mornings, we would hear his cries announcing that it was time for available villagers to gather down at the worksite to begin the day’s activities.
