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!

 

WHISKY OR WHISKEY?

Generally, ‘whisky’ is made in Scotland and ‘whiskey’ is made in Ireland and the United States. Confusingly, however, most whiskies marketed in Japan and Canada are labeled ‘whisky.’ Malt whisky is the product of malted barley only. Grain whisky and whiskey from Ireland and the United States are produced from a wider range of cereals including rye, wheat and corn. – The Single Malt Whiskey Companion: A Connoisseur's Guide by Helen Arthur
