It’s been a busy time since last spring. The website’s been launched; we attended festivals in Fergus , Maxville, Montreal, North Lanark and Uxbridge (just a visit); travelled through Europe; plus performed in a couple of choir concerts. Some pictures from the festivals are later in the newsletter.
Since Bill doesn’t know the term ‘idle’ he also released a single and album plus assumed the responsibilities of both Chair and Newspaper editor for CASSOC (Clans and Scottish Societies of Canada) last fall.
Through the experiences with the latter, we’re seeing the need for more regular and persistent engagement with members. It would be great to let people know of happenings especially for festivals where you’d be able to visit your Clan’s booth.
This means looking at social media options such as FaceBook. But it’s not without trepidation given the aspects of social media abuse. Slow steps and safeguards will be undertaken.
Please check page 4 for the 2022 Gathering and considering attending. We will be there for sure. As Bill wrote in his Chair message for CASSOC, we are not only our own stories but also the stories we share to weave us together as a community. Let’s be in this story together.
