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.


Thanks
Melissa Gibson
President

Full information is on our Burns Nicht page, where you can also sign up and buy your tickets online, if you have not done so already.


The Celtic Cross

In January, Elaine Meece will present The Celtic Cross—a look at the origin and meaning of it. It has become not only a religious symbol but also a symbol of Scottish heritage. However, it is often a topic that stirs up controversy.
