The Scottish Society of Knoxville
Cead Mile Failte
"A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!"
To foster interest in the culture, heritage, and contributions of the Scots and Scots-Irish, and to provide venues for recognizing and celebrating their rich legacy.
SSK Typical Schedule of Events
SSK gathers together thru the year to celebrate Scottish History and interests. The following is a list of these types of events. Due to CoVid 19, our plans for 2020 were reduced.
At this time, we are looking for additional officers to assist with plans for 2021. We are looking for a site for our Burns’ Dinner that will allow a good size group to attend.
This will be updated as plans are finalized.
