Schedule

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.
