CLAN PAISLEY

INTERNATIONAL GATHERING

24th ~ 26th August 2018

 

This year's International Gathering happily coincides with our THIRTIETH Anniversary of the Society being established. Much has been achieved in this time and the momentum continues with even greater representation worldwide.  

A three day programme has been organised. This gathering will include a Church Service on the 26th of August in the great Abbey of Paisley followed by a Civic Reception and lunch, generously hosted by the Provost and Council of Renfrewshire in Paisley Town Hall. Lord-Lieutenants, Councillors, MP's, MSP's and local dignitaries will be present so we are keen for maximum support from members, wearing Tartan ~ of course.

Invitations to all clan and society members have been sent out already. If you have not received yours yet, please do get in touch with our Membership Secretary as soon as possible. As some events have space limitations, we request early responses to ensure the least disappointment.

Due to the significance of the occasion, invitations have also been sent out to non-member Paisleys to share in the celebrations and events.
