We will update everyone on our summer activities with the Highland Games in Oregon and Washington.
Please come for the Good Company, Food,  Meeting and Program.  Also thanks to Dot we have a really good supply of store items for sale, everything from Flags to Books, CD's DVD's and a lot of fun items.

Hope to see you all there.   Craig
