CHEERS - To a new historian. We will never tire of reminding readers about the importance of historians. They are dedicated to preserving local history, which helps us better understand the present. Perth recently appointed Sylvia Zierak to the position of historian. The job previously was held by the late May Yost. The town and the rest of the area are fortunate Sylvia has the desire to preserve history. It is a challenge to find people with her passion and knowledge. Thank you to all our local historians.
