Scotch Colony 140th Anniversary committee met recently for a planning session. According to committee chair, Darlene Morton, 2013 is the 140th anniversary of the founding of the Scotch Colony which is located near Perth-Andover and includes the communities of Kincardine, Bon Accord, Lower Kintore and Upper Kintore. The first of almost 600 families started arriving from the east of Scotland in 1873. Morton says, “Most 140th activities will take place August 23, 24, & 25, 2013 and are centered around Burns Hall in Kincardine.”

Secretary Carolyn Smith said, “We are counting-down to the August celebration. Festivities we’re discussing include:

  • Friday musicians’ jam session
  • Guided bus tours of colony sites
  • History displays
  • Quilt show
  • Tartan display
  • Cultural demonstrations
  • Food
  • Raffles
  • Memorial church service
  • Concert featuring Colony talent
  • Commemorative souvenirs
  • History/Cookbook”

Cari Grierson, editor of the Colony history/cookbook, requests, “There is still time to submit a short paragraph about a colony person — include a photo and a recipe. We’d also like to get a rough count of books to be printed so please let us know how many you want. Call me at 1-506-273-3670.”

Treasurer Garth Farquhar says, “Several fundraisers are in the works — a yard sale and several bake sales. We will announce them as the weather warms.”

Bill Duncan, who works with the website, says, “More events details are coming. Keep up-to-date at the new website.” www.ScotchColony.rivermaple.net and www.facebook.com/ScotchColony

Morton quips, “We want to get the word out–we are looking for volunteers–and if you don’t come to us we will hunt you down in the streets, in the woods, and in your own homes.”
