It's Our Birthday!!
Clan MacFarlane Worldwide is now 10 years old. We have had quite the ride. For some of you, you have been there with us every step of the way. We started as an idea in Scotland, and by July 4th, 2010, a group of like-minded worker bees decided we should strike out on our own. And so here we are years 10 years later.
In 10 years' time, we have received our letter of determination from the IRS to be a U.S. 501c3, taken a large tour group to Scotland and Ireland. We have hosted a Digital Gathering featuring the Lord Lyon, hosted countless Highland Games from New Zealand to California, New England, Florida, Texas, Canada, and all points in-between. We have a small store where friends and families can purchase t-shirts and tartan ribbon. We have sponsored archeological digs and muniment projects. To say it simply...WE'VE BEEN BUSY!
So, today we release the September Loch Sloy! which is our quarterly magazine. Within this issue are photos and thoughts from the days of "thinkin' about starting" to links to our own Clan MacFarlane Worldwide YouTube(tm) channel. Are we boasting? Perhaps we are, but in 10 years' time, we are here and we don't see an end to our MacFarlane Journey.
We hope you are a paying member. There is much on the horizon to do and experience. Next year, we hope to take our second group to visit Scotland (as long as this year comes to an end). So Steve and I lift our cup to toast Clan MacFarlane Worldwide, Inc., its founders, its current Board of Directors, our tent Delegates, our Advisory Board, and all those who have become a part of the MacFarlane Journey.
September 2020 Loch Sloy!
The September 2020 Loch Sloy! is now available for our paying members. You will need to select the link to Publications from the menu above to find the link for the new quarterly magazine.
