On Saturday morning, June 18, at 10:30, Scottish clan banners will fill Main Street during the “15th Annual Taste of Scotland Parade.” Local families with Scottish heritage are encouraged to walk in the short parade and carry their banner. Assembly is in the parking lot of the New Town Hall. Casual clothes are acceptable. Large groups are encouraged. The Museum is making a collection of these banners. The number now stands at 71. Review the following list to see if your clan is available. (Sometime the spelling is a little different. Mc and Mac are the same.) Volunteers from the Friends of the Scottish Tartan Museum are available to help.
