Join us on Saturday, November 13 at 11:00 AM for our special program on Scotland!

Paul Thompson, President of the Saint Andrew’s Society of Pittsburgh will present a slideshow of Scotland and talk about the country, the clans and the culture. The slideshow will show some of the natural beauty of Scotland and Paul will add anecdotes and personal experiences. He will also touch on some of the history, and the effects on Scotland, her people, and people around the world including here in the US.

Paul will talk about the great Highland bagpipe, where it came from, how it works, and play some tunes. Champion Highland dancer Katie Janeiro will dance some of Scotland’s ancient dances, with descriptions of how they came about.

The program will include Scotland’s special relationship with the US and with Pittsburgh in particular. Paul will finish with a look at Scotland today, and how the ancient culture survives and is at the core of Scottish values and society in the twenty-first century - making Scotland’s political, legal and social systems unique among nations.
