This Gathering will be historic, as we will be joining (via Zoom©) Clan Ewing in Scotland to elect the first Clan Ewing Chief in several hundred years.  This is a formal legal proceeding held by the Scottish Courts. Read background on the search for a new Chief.
We plan to see Celtic dancers, visit historical sites, take a river cruise, and enjoy our traditional banquet at the hotel.
