Welcome to our 2021 Events Page! We hope to bring you some traditional and some new events and activities to celebrate Scottish life and culture. Please feel free to contact us with your ideas.
We will update information as events and activities are planned.

New to the Society and want to know more about book club?
We meet monthly (hopefully we will meet again in person soon). Everyone has the opportunity to put in a book suggestion. Criteria: no series, no political, no religious books. Put in one book you have wanted to read but haven’t had the chance to yet, and one book you have read but your anxious to read again and discuss. If your book is chosen, you will lead the discussion so come prepared. When we are back in person – your book – you choose the date and place we meet. Could be at your home for a pot luck – could be at a restaurant. We look forward to having any member join our group.

‘Throwback Burns’ Night Supper
Throwback Burns Supper 2021
The first Burns supper was July 21, 1801 when nine of Burns’ close friends got together in Alloway, Scotland to mark the fifth anniversary of their friend’s death. The night included a tasty meal (haggis, of course!), performances of Burns’ work, and a speech in honor of the great Bard (now known as the Immortal Memory).
Join us for a “Throwback” Burns Supper similar to the first one!
Prepare your meal to share with a small gathering of your family, friends, or pod-mates, whomever you are comfortable at home. Then we will eat ‘together but separately’ and enjoy an evening of traditional and not-so-traditional fun via Zoom.
