Kirkin O'the Tartan
Members are invited to attend and participate in either of two Kirkins
(or both) on back-to-back Sundays: 26-Oct and 2-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.
The first, on 26-Oct, will be at
Preston Hollow, Presbyterian Church, on the N.E. corner of
Preston Rd. and Walnut Hill Ln., in Dallas. Both services, 9:30am and 11am, will
include the Krikin activities. Participants are reminded to allow sufficient time
for parking their cars and lining up at the "assembly point." (Society members are
always welcome as they "know the drill" for presenting and placing the tartan flags!)
The following week, 2-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 road
EAST for about 5 1/4 miles. The church will be on your left at the intersection of Parker
and Church Lane.)
