Annual June potluck...come hungry and enjoy yourself!
Society to provide meats and drinks.
Members are asked to bring a covered dish and/or a dessert.
(Bring the kids and/or grandkids, too. It's a family oriented
"Master Griller" at work! For the sixth year in a row,
former Society President Gene Teakell manned
the grill to cook burgers and dogs for attendees at the 2016, June Potluck.
(This image was taken at the 2012 event.)
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 Gene! (Foto by Fischer)

the society officers (or

travels; "lessons learned" from genealogical research efforts; presentations about historical
Scottish events or figures, etc. We are also open to presentations from individuals outside

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