Fest140: You’re invited!


Failte, failte!
Welcome home to all who have connections in
the Scotch Colony of New Brunswick!

August 23, 24, 25, 2013 are special days in the Scotch Colony.  We who have ties here connecting us to the land or to the memories of the early settlers of 1873-74 will enjoy a very unique celebration that has been several years in the planning.

Scotch Colony Fest 140 encompasses many activities that will:
• connect you to your Scottish roots
• explore your heritage in music and displays
• rekindle ties with your relatives
• immerse you the beauty of our countrysideSC140poster4

Our specially designed logo is the four-sided Celtic Love Knot binding the four areas of the Scotch Colony together whilst circling the thistle of Scotland. As our logo depicts, we will bond and learn and share our common heritage in these bonny hills in all the activities planned for your enjoyment and centred around the Burns Hall, Kincardine.

RSVP – It would be great if we knew how many are coming so we can better plan our activities.

Bring any and all, if possible, folding chair, sun/rain gear and fly dope as well as Family Tree diagram, a new or old  home-made quilt with a story card attached for display.

Make your Quilt Story Card about recipe card size, 3 by 5 inches.  It should name the person who made the quilt, the owner, the approximate date and size, the pattern, and any little memorable or special info about the quilt.

DunRoamin’ fundraiser at Fest140


Leland after surgery

logo_cloudDunRoamin’ Stray & Rescue will be selling snacks/drinks at the Fest140 concert/dance on Saturday, 24 August. They recently rescued a dog (within the past week or 2) from the Scotch Colony. They named him Leland, and he had to be sent to Moncton for surgery, which was very expensive. The money they raise selling lunches at our event, will help cover the cost of Leland’s surgery. Leland is back in Florenceville now, and they are looking for a “foster family” for him. His owner (if he had one) has not been found. Their website is www.dunroaminstrayandrescue.com.

If you’d like to foster or adopt Leland, or contribute to DunRoamin, contact:

Don’t Miss Our Final Bake Sale!

Perth-Andover Farmer's Market, August 2012

Perth-Andover Farmer’s Market, August 2012

We’re having our second and final “Bake Sale Fundraiser” at the Perth-Andover Farmer’s Market at the Legion Hall on Saturday July 13, from 9am – 1pm. We’d love to see you there! It’s a great way to spend a weekend morning and support the local farmers, crafters, and creative vendors who work hard to bring their best to market. Live music and a twirl around the dance floor add to the festive atmosphere. There’s lots of good things to eat, including a cooked to order breakfast put on by the Legion volunteers. Be sure to browse the Scotch Colony table for some fresh baked goodies and check out the selection of items offered to help support the Scotch Colony Fest140, August 23-25, 2013!! Times are for the Atlantic Time Zone (one hour earlier than Eastern time). We have a marker on our map for the Legion Hall.

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.
