Welcome to the St. Louis Scots!

Celebrating and bringing Scottish culture to the heart of St. Louis since 1973

 

Please Read This Important Announcement From Our Society President

It is with great disappointment that the Scottish St. Andrew Society of Greater St. Louis has decided to postpone indefinitely our upcoming April events: the annual Tartan Day celebrations on Saturday, April 4th, and the Speaker Series lecture with Scott Sinclair on Wednesday, April 8th.

The COVID-19 pandemic has already been declared a state and national-level emergency. The WHO, CDC, local and national governments issue more stringent restrictions on public gatherings every day. Amidst the chaos and uncertainty, postponing our events is the only socially responsible decision.  

We are cautiously optimistic that we can reschedule these events for sometime later in the year, but the fluid nature of the crisis makes it imprudent to try to plan for a particular date at this point. Please stay tuned to our Society communiques via your preferred media for updates.  

Tartan Day celebrates the anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath on April 6th, 1320. We were looking forward to celebrating the 700th anniversary in person. Since that is no longer an option, we throw ourselves behind the New York City Tartan Week's plan to hold a virtual Tartan Day celebration. Please celebrate with us electronically by posting a photo or video of you and your family/friends in highland dress, playing an instrument, reading a poem, or whatever you wish to do to celebrate Tartan Day. Tag it with #nyctartanweek and #STLScots. Check out their Facebook page for more information and post your media there and/or on our own Society Facebook page.  

In the meantime, stay safe and keep washing your hands! Check out this handy website created by a 17 year old boy which turns any song into a 20 second song! We chose Auld Lang Syne!

Sincerely,

Matt Pantaleoni
