In 1998 the US Senate designated 6 April each year as Tartan Day "in recognition of the monumental achievements and invaluable contributions made by Scottish Americans." Previously, in some parts of the US, and in other parts of the world (notably Canada where a Tartan Day was already in place) special events had been held to celebrate this day. But the Senate resolution has provided a further impetus and a growing number of organizations and individuals are having their own local festivities. So that these events gain further publicity within the world-wide Scottish community, and to allow as many people as possible to participate, the details of a number of these celebrations are listed below. So if there is a Tartan Day function in your area, come along and join the other folk who have a pride in Scotland who will be there!
Appearing in person will be Valarie Stewart of The Ebony Showcase Theater and calling in to the KCAA Radio program will be Jim Anderson of the St. Andrews Society, and Lorna Jack, President, the Americas, Scottish Development International
