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.)
