The Scottish Society of Dallas is hosting the dedication ceremony of
the Texas Tartan Day Commemorative Stone. We would like to have as
many people attend the ceremony as possible.
Date: Wednesday, August 18th
Time: 6:00 p.m.
Place: W.O. Haggard, Jr. Library
2501 Coit Road Plano, TX 75075
PLEASE REPLY IF YOU WILL ATTEND.
The Haggard library will need a head count to provide a large enough room.
Mr. Frank Maurer, a stone-carver from California, has created a stone
carved in ancient Pictish tradition for each state to commemorate
National Tartan Day in the USA. Our Texas State stone has been
created with symbols meaningful to our state and Scottish heritage.
Our stone will be Texas Limestone that comes from the same quarry that
our state capital’s interior stone is from.
Mr. Maurer has donated stones to 13 other states in the U.S. and shall
be presenting to Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma in August.
As the stone is “portable”… the plan is to display it at various
Tartan Day functions and festivals throughout the great state of Texas
through multiple organizations.
