Kirkin O'the Tartan
Members are invited to attend and participate in either of two Kirkins
(or both) on back-to-back Sundays: 30-Oct and 6-Nov. For further information or details
about either event please
click here to send email
to the Webmasters. Your email will be forwarded to the member(s) in charge of coordinating
the Society's participation in these events. Don't forget to break out your kilts or tartan
skirts and/or sashes!
The first, on 30-Oct, will be at
Preston Hollow, Presbyterian Church, 9800 Preston Rd, Dallas - on
the N.E. corner of Preston Rd. and Walnut Hill Ln. Two services will be held at 9:30am and
11am. Participants are reminded to allow sufficient time (30 to 45 min) for parking their
cars and lining up at the "assembly point" - the foyer on the Preston Road side of the church
- in advance of their chosen service. Society members are always welcome as they "know the
drill" for presenting and placing the tartan flags
at the start of a service and retiring them at the close. A contingent of the North
Texas Caledonian Pipes and Drums will be participating also. Church Phone: 214-368-6348.
The following week, 6-Nov,
Corinth Presbyterian Church, on Parker Rd. east of Plano (near the
town of Parker) will hold its annual Kirkin, with a single service at 11am. (From the
intersection of US-75 [Central Expressway] and Parker Road, in Plano, take Parker Rd.
EAST for about 5 1/4 miles. The church will be on your left at the intersection of Parker
Rd. and Church Lane.)

you all and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017.
