Greetings Folks,

April 6th is Tartan Day and it is a day when Scots and friends celebrate their heritage in a variety of ways.

In Quebec it marks the 10th anniversary of our first celebration after a bill was unanimously passed by the Quebec National Assembly in December 2003.

This year, with Government offices closed on the Sunday, it would be difficult to hold an official ceremony. However, a Kirkin’ O’ the Tartans (blessing of the Tartans) ceremony has been arranged at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on Sunday morning April 6th during the regular service that starts at 11:00 AM. To participate in this ceremony, a tartan must be worn or carried and you should be able to name the Tartan when asked. The presence of one or more pipers of the 78th Fraser Highlanders is anticipated.

Immediately afterwards, participants are invited to gather at Le Pub St-Alexandre, 1087, rue Saint-Jean (just down the hill from the Church) for a gathering of fellowship, refreshments and lunch if you wish.

If you plan to attend, please inform Ted and Louise Gunn by phone or email prior to April 5th at 418-842-6563 or gunn@upc.qc.ca.

Happy Tartan Day!
