Welcome to the Scottish Society of Richmond

Who We Are

 We are thrilled to be celebrating our 40th anniversary. In February of 1978, eight enthusiastic people met to create an organization for the purpose of sharing their common heritage with others. It took some hard work and support to create the "Scottish Society of Richmond, Va". The bylaws were written by the committee, and on September 7th at a general meeting, they were adopted.


We welcome new members.  Membership is a great way to meet and share stories with people with similar interests, stay informed on the latest Scottish American cultural news, and stay active in the Virginia Scottish scene.  For more information please click here.   We're excited to have you join the team! 


The River City Caledonian, our quarterly newsletter, features upcoming events, society news, a local and regional events Calendar, and authentic Scottish recipes. This quarter's featured clan is Clan Graham.  For the most up-to-date Society News please click here.
