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.
Scotland and the Slave Trade
The National Trust of Scotland, in documenting Scotland’s involvement in the slave trade, takes a bold step in owning this part of their/our history. It is a straightforward look into this business that shaped our country and the world around us in many ways. The program will conclude with a couple of examples of my favorite contributions from Bessie Jones, an African American cultural icon, that should be known by all Americans.
