Grill Master Gene!

    For the seventh year in a row, Society members cooked burgers and dogs for attendees at the 2017 June Potluck. Shown here, two former Society presidents: Gene Teakell and Scott Fischer (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!  (BFischer Photo)

Members: If you would like help "erase" any of the "Program TBD" statements above, please contact one of the society officers (or click here 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.

Remember: Our collective success is built on the abilities and contributions of all of our members ... not just a few!
