We are thrilled to be celebrating our 43rd 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 Society's activities were featured in the Henrico Citizen. Read all about it:
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!
