Scottish Society of Greater Bloomington

History

In February, 2002 the Caledonia Club of Greater Bloomington held its inaugural Burns Dinner. This successful event was followed by activates that April to celebrate Tartan Day. A presentation was made on courthouse square in Bloomington, followed by a Forfoar Bridie luncheon, and participation in the annual Tartan Day gathering at College Mall.

On May 13, 2002, a club planning meeting was held. 17 attendees elected officers, planned for future meetings, and voted to give this group a new name: The Scottish Society of Greater Bloomington. The Scottish Society of Greater Bloomington was founded to provide a means for individuals of Scottish ancestry or interest to experience and participate in activities that celebrate the Scottish culture.
