If tartans, kilts, bagpipes, Highland games, Scottish/Celtic folklore, history, music, community service, and Robert Burns pique your interests and curiosity, you’re invited to an informal meeting of the Scottish-American Society of Altus on Saturday, Oct. 12, at 10 a.m., at the Altus Public Library, 421 N. Hudson.

The Scottish-American Society of Altus is being formed to educate the general public and to promote the history, heritage, culture, language, and ethnicity of Scottish and Pan-Celtic peoples, as well as the Scottish-American contributions to American democracy and culture.

Alba gu brath (all-a-pa ku praw) is Scottish Gaelic for “Scotland until Judgment” or, more colloquially, “Scotland Forever.”

You do not have to be of Scottish descent to be a member of the Scottish-American Society of Altus,the only requirement for membership is an abiding interest in Scottish/Pan-Celtic culture and heritage, as well as community service.
