In my report following the AGM, it was announced that the South U.S. Branch would be reduced to one state, now only Georgia, and will undergo a name change. Since then we have been working to establish a branch in the states which were excluded. We have work in progress in the state of Alabama, thank you to Jonn & Kathy Duncan.
Yesterday, I received a call from Dean Robertson, president of the Mid-West Branch (Oklahoma) saying they want to include the state of Louisiana in their branch. Fantastic! Thank you to Dean & Jean Robertson. Of the original five states excluded, that just leaves three; Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi. If you have any contacts in those states, please let me know.
BTW, for those of you who are familiar with the Robertson family of Louisiana, "Duck Dynasty", we understand they have contacted the Clan Centre in Scotland and will be soon visiting our Clan Donnachaidh Museum. Won't that be interesting?!!
Keep in mind that the Clan Donnachaidh ad will now appear in the Scottish Banner. If this newspaper is available in your area, please let me know if you see it and submit any suggestions for changes. Remember to take advantage of the option to submit an ad for an upcoming activity at your branch on the "Events" page. This is a free service and can be added on-line anytime at: scottishbanner.com/events/.
I hope you are all having a great Summer and enjoying the highland games in your area. Please keep in touch.
