GOVERNANCE & SUPPORT

ANCESTRY & ADVOCACY

The Society participates in Tartan Day at the Legislature to help recognize the monumental achievements and invaluable contributions made by Scottish Americans that have led to America’s preeminence in the fields of science, technology, medicine, government, politics, economics, architecture, literature, media and visual and performing arts. Recognition of these accomplishments is honored throughout the Society’s endeavors.

Tartan Mini Golf is back again and we're trying something new! Get kilted (or tartan-ed), and join us for a fun Saturday afternoon of mini golf at Kings Beach Miniature Golf at Lake Tahoe - cost is $15/golfer for 19 holes of golf. There will be a 1:30 shotgun start where all groups of golfers start simultaneously from different holes, which allows groups to complete the course at about the same time. Come with your best putting skills to tackle the 19-hole course and maybe take the 2024 title of Champion Tartan Mini Golfer!
