At our Annual Membership Meeting (ZOOM) on August 7/2021, Clan MacFarlane Worldwide registered members will be asked to vote on the location of our 2023 Annual Membership Meeting (AMM).
Two potential locations have been put forward by delegates who host tents at various
Scottish and Celtic events over the summer in the USA and Canada. These are:
- St. Andrew’s Society of Detroit Highland Games – Livonia, Michigan
Date: First weekend of August
This was originally the chosen location for the 2021 AMM, however, circumstances such as Covid-19 and the US/Canada border closure necessitated a change.
The event is held at the Greenmead Historical Park in Livonia Michigan, just 10 miles from the city of Detroit.
A Friday Ceilidh starts off the activities with Saturday Games and all typical activities.
While there, consider visiting the Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, the Motown Museum or the Detroit Riverfront.
Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport is close by for those who wish to get there by airplane.
