1949 Programme of Events from the 75th Anniversary of Upper Kintore


Thanks to Garth Farquhar for sharing this programme with Robert LaFrance on Facebook:

“Courtesy of Garth Farquhar, this is a copy of the actual program handed out in 1949 when Upper Kintore celebrated the 75th year of the arrival of its first colonists in 1874. The first settlers of Upper and Lower Stonehaven (Bon Accord and Kincardine) and Lower Kintore arrived the year before. This month all the Scottish descendants and others are going to celebrate the 140th anniversary of the Scotch Colony itself. Look to the Facebook page of the Scotch Colony for details of the event that takes place in about three weeks. Tours of historic buildings, a barbecue, some Scottish Games demonstrations, and lots more.”
