February Monthly Meeting

Join us on Thursday February 12th at the ICC - 1106 N. Central in Phoenix for our monthly meeting.

Today most Scottish people regard kilts as formal dress or national dress. Although there are still a few people who wear a kilt daily, it is generally owned or rented to be worn at weddings or other formal occasions and may be worn by anyone regardless of nationality or descent. For formal wear, kilts are usually worn with a Prince Charlie or an Argyll jacket. 

But, would you like to know how to properly wear a kilt? Come and find out!

6:30 - 7:00 pm - Social Half Hour
7:00 - 7:15 pm - Music by Robin Lowe, Mary Reace & Friends

Robert Burns Supper

Robert BurnsOnce a year, a special event takes place around the world. It's been part of Scottish culture for over 200 years where men and women dress up formally to meet with descendents and lovers of Scotland, for a gastro-literary celebration of the life and works of the poet Robert Burns. It is an event that transcends time, geographical borders, political and religious beliefs, to bring people together in a traditional Scottish feast.

Our event for 2015 was held on Saturday, January 24 at the Phoenix Country Club

Pictures and report to follow soon
