Tartan Day Luncheon
The first ever Tartan Day Luncheon was a success! Members from the Grand Rapids Scottish Society and the Kalamazoo Scottish Festival Association gathered in Wayland, MI (halfway point between our two cities) for a luncheon. Everyone enjoyed mingling and making new friends.
Both groups agree that this should become a new annual tradition!
In late January 2023 the GRSS membership joined forces with Doric Lodge, a local Masonic group, to host a traditional Burns Supper. The GRSS holds this supper annually in honor of Scotland's favorite bard (poet), Robert Burns.
