to the Memphis Scottish Society's website!

We exist to promote an understanding in “things Scottish,” through programs at our Monthly Meetings, and support for individual’s studies of Scottish heritage, history, and culture.

Come and meet us at 6:00 PM on the second Monday of the month for the Monthly Meeting at Jason’s Deli at Highland & Poplar. Each meeting includes a presentation of Scottish interest. There are also several informal gatherings throughout the year, such as our Annual Ceilidh (party) and our Annual Picnic.

The highlight each year is the Burns Nicht Supper, a celebration of Scotland’s poet, Robert Burns on the Saturday in late January closest to his birthday on the 25th.

Details on our Events are posted on this website as plans progress.

June Meeting

Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia means New Scotland, but do you know who else claims to influence its heritage? The answer is a sneak preview for June’s MSSI monthly meeting at Jason’s Deli, June 13. Some of Canada’s first settlers were from France, the Acadians. Next are diverse groups with a common African ancestry. The third group was actually the first: Mi’Kmaq and First Nations people have been in Nova Scotia for ten thousand years. And the fourth group: Gaelic from both Scotland and Ireland. For the rest of the story, you’ll have to come June 13.
