The Ewing Family Association has completed a memorable 12-month cycle. Starting in April of 2015, we began participation in select Highland Games. Three appearances later – and a fourth about to occur – we’re building a formula for participation in this type of cultural celebration.
Great planning and organizing by Walter ‘Major’ Ewing propelled us to our first-ever gathering in conjunction with a Celtic festival. This is a format we will undoubtedly repeat in the future. Our 14th biennial gathering was well-attended and a lot of fun for all. Fortunately, we were able to include large doses of family history and genealogy. We even attracted some new members!
By the time this newsletter goes to press, we expect that a group of Ewings who reside in Scotland and England will have met at Strathleven House as the first of what we hope will be many ongoing Clan Ewing activities. Led by Commander Thor Ewing, our best wishes go out to our kin abroad on this historic first gathering.
Plans will begin soon for the next Family Convention to be held in Scotland within the next three years. The efforts of the Ewing family on both sides of the Atlantic will be necessary to bring the final step of electing a Clan Chief to fruition. We will look to one another to take this step together.
