President's Letter - October 2020
David McBee

David McBee I hope to see more of you at our next Zoom meeting, October 22. I am also looking forward to the small gatherings that may be coming together.

I will also be representing the Society at the ICC Anam Cara event this month at my own expense but I will be showing support for all in our Celtic Community. They are sporting in-person tickets with all of the proper spacing and safety details as well as a remote live ticket as well. If you can attend, please do so. Information at azirish.org

We are meeting with the Phoenix Parks Department this week to begin discussions of possibilities for a 2021 Games of some sort if at all possible. We will update you on any significant progress but we are penciled in for March 6th. Now to see if this can work out for all involved.

Stay safe and sterilize with your sanitizer of choice. Scotch recommended.

SLAINTE, DAVID


Events

Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are working on ideas to resume some sort of "unofficial" in=person Gatherings. And members should watch for an email invitation to our next Zoom Gathering on October 22.


Support our Vendors

In support of our vendors in these difficult times, we recommend that you continue to shop with them online if you can since they cannot attend any events for who knows how long. Tell them that you are a member of the Caledonian Society of Arizona and see what special treatment they may have in store for you.
