These last few weeks, we have had time to reflect on our own purpose as well as the purpose of the institutions and organizations of which we value. So often, when we think of a Scottish clan, we think of the embodiments and expressions of our own, perhaps idealized but definitely shared life in the highland games and Scottish festival calendar. That is, until now, until the dramatic interruption, the sudden stilling (but simultaneous stirring) of our lives.
Highland games organizational boards have been canceling games throughout this global pandemic, and we have all indicated that this will continue in the foreseeable future. To that end, Clan MacTavish continues to thrive and we wish to invite you to participate as a listening member to our Annual General Meeting. This meeting had originally been scheduled to be held at the New Hampshire Highland Games at Loon Mountain in September. However, due to the need to secure accommodations and travel early, coupled with the challenges of planning five months in advance during these times, Clan MacTavish will be holding a virtual AGM on June 18th at 8:00 PM EST. The board will hold our monthly meeting and we will invite our chief to give his address to the clan. We will be providing a toll-free call-in number to all who would like to listen in.
Your financial contributions through your donations and membership, your promotion of Clan MacTavish, and even your contribution to the online banter are all deeply cherished. Though we have been unable to physically meet together in celebration, our online community has been growing in numbers and contributed content. The board, therefore, invites you to hear what all has been accomplished in one year due to your support, and also where the Clan is going in the future. The phone number and access number will be shared out in the upcoming weeks.
