Annual June potluck...come hungry and enjoy yourself!
Society to provide meats and drinks.
Members are asked to bring a salad, covered dish and/or a dessert.
(Bring the kids and/or grandkids, too. It's a family oriented meeting.)
For the eighth year in a row, Society members
cooked burgers and dogs for attendees at the 2018 June Potluck.
Cooking this year were member Dave Rave and former Society president
Gene Teakell (l-to-r). The family-oriented potluck is a tradition for
the final meeting of "our year," which runs from September through
June. In 2011, we expanded that tradition (at Gene's urging) to
include burgers and dogs grilled on the patio just outside of our
meeting hall ... and we've continued that tradition ever since.
Thank you gentlemen! (Photo by Duncan)

If you would like help
"erase" any of the "Program TBD
" statements above, please contact one of
the society officers (or
to send email to our webmaster) and
let us know what you have in mind. Members are encouraged to share images and stories of their
travels; "lessons learned" from genealogical research efforts; presentations about historical
Scottish events or figures, etc. We are also open to presentations from individuals outside
of our group.
Our collective success is built on the
abilities and contributions of all of our members ... not just a few!
