A shout out goes to Janice Beatty for her efforts on the children's games and activities tent as well as the cookout after the games. Thank you!

BATTLE OF BANNOCKBURN OBSERVANCE AT THE SCOTTISH RITE TEMPLE

Many of our members, along with pipers and drummers from the Louisville Pipe Band, participated in a program at the Scottish Rite Temple in remembrance of the Battle of Bannockburn. Our Society members participated in the program: Rev. Peggy French lead an opening prayer; Mark Johnson read the poem, Bannockburn by Robert Burns; Regional Celtic, Jenny Dickson, shared information about our Society; Marleen Bailie, piped and Laura Doll played tenor drum.

It was an evening of firsts - as long-time Scottish Rite members commented this event was the very first time bagpipes were played in its halls!

 

BEST KNOWN GLEN IN SCOTLAND

Glen Coe is probably Scotland’s most famous and most scenic Highland glen – and deservedly so. Visitors from all over the world flock here year after year, inspired by the sheer scale and grandeur of its surrounding mountains. Equally fascinating is the intrigue of its turbulent past. On February 13, 1692, even though the death toll was low, the event termed the Massacre of Glencoe became history’s worst breach of Scottish hospitality.

Today, much of the glen is owned by the National Trust for Scotland. To learn more about the mountains, the natural history of Glencoe, and the events which led to the infamous massacre of 1692, a visit to the nearby Visitor Center is highly recommended.
