Welcome to the Scottish American Society of the Quad Cities!

We're a community of people who come together to celebrate Scottish history, culture, and tradition, and our connections with our Celtic "cousins." If you're interested in Scottish and or Celtic history and tradition, you're more than welcome to join us! Events include traditional celebrations, such as our annual Robert Burns Dinner, Beltane, Tartan Day, Samhain, and St. Andrews Day, and we also support other groups that promote Scottish/Celtic traditions, heritage, and culture. You may find us at the Celtic Festival and Highland Games, hosting an annual Scottish Golf Day, or at Blackhawk Pipes and Drums performances.

It is a great organization of friendly people, and we are always accepting new members. Scottish heritage or ancestry is not required. Please see our membership page, and do join us at an event. Congratulations to our newest board members: Ron Stuart and Jill Yates!  

The SAS recently donated $500 to support flood relief efforts at the Salvation Army of the Quad Cities. See our Events page for a photo. Speaking of donations, when you donate to the Scottish American Society through Birdies for Charity, your dollars go further*, thanks to a 5 to 10 percent bonus gift from Birdies. (*And isn't that a fine thing for a Scottish organization?)
Birdies for Charity flyers went out with our last newsletter. To contribute, send it back with either a per-birdie pledge (for example, .01 cent per birdie) or a flat rate. The flyer offers a record of past birdie totals to help you plan your gift. Return by July 12 to Birdies for Charity,15623 Coaltown Rd., E. Moline, IL 61244.
