Fundraising Items and Raffle to Benefit Scotch Colony Fest 140

Our new publication, The Scotch Colony Hearts and Hearths, is now available. Proceeds from the sale of this keepsake history/cookbook will go towards the 140th festivities.

Debuting in May 2013, “Robbie Burns Night in the Colony,” the newest CD by Scotch Colony musicians was recorded at Burns Hall in January 2013. Be sure to get your copy soon as the previous CD sold out!

Several special jewelry items, our “Scotch Colony Pewter Collection,” are now available and will be offered throughout the summer also. More details here!

A raffle will be held this summer to raise funds to benefit the Scotch Colony Fest140 being held August 23-15, 2013. Tickets are $2 each or three for $5. Raffle tickets may be purchased throughout the summer from Carolyn Smith, at our concert by the Fitzgerald Family planned for July 16, 2013 at Burns Hall in Kincardine, and during Scotch Fest140 at Burns Hall on Friday evening and Saturday. The winners will be drawn on Saturday evening, August 24, 2013. Check out our events calendar for updates.

Raffle items are locally crafted and donated to support the celebration of the founding of the Scotch Colony. Cari Grierson has handstitched a lovely fiddlehead tablecloth. Garth Farquhar of Tobique Log Homes in Upper Kintore has crafted a log bench. Judy MacIntosh has woven by hand on her loom a Victoria County tartan throw. Bill Duncan offers an original framed archival pigmentprint on canvas by the artist of Upper Kintore.

New Scotch Colony T-Shirts Are Here!

KnotLogoMetroBlueShirtSMThe logo of our Scotch Colony Fest140 on the new Scotch Colony t-shirt is a four-sided Celtic knot. Each corner represents a part of our Scotch Colony, Bon Accord, Upper and Lower Kintore and Kincardine. The thistle at the centre reminds us of Scotland, the country left behind, one hundred and forty years ago.

Available now $15 by contacting Carolyn Smith 506-273-6578. Look for the shirt at the Scotch Colony table at Perth-Andover Farmer’s Market this summer, at the Fitzgerald Family Concert at Burns Hall on July 16, and at Burns Hall during the Scotch Colony Fest 140 Aug. 23-25, 2013.
