Clan Ross America

AGM

 
The CRAmerica Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held in Chicago June 20-21, at the Chicago Highland Games in Itasca (where the Clan Ross tent won the award for the best tent displays). The newly elected Board members were sworn in and seated, with a quorum present. The business aspects of continuing the Clan Ross Foudation, re-named ClanRossAmerica, were carried out, including reports on membership, treasury, budget, genealogy, newsletter, incorporation documents updates, etc. Details of these reports and documents will soon be posted in the Member's section of our website.

Message from the President

 
Welcome to ClanRossAmerica !!
 
ClanRossAmerica, or CRAmerica for short, is in the business of supporting the contributions of Clan Ross to the US and the world – past, present & future… and along the way, having a very good time.
 
As a group, we are most visible at Highland Games and Festivals around the country, with a welcome for all, but an especially warm welcome for members.  We cheer on the athletes (Dean Ross !!), march in the parade of tartans, trade stories at the tent, and sing along during the ceildah.
 
As a group, our most important work is supporting and preserving Scottish historical artifacts and buildings, and building for the future through scholarships to children of members in the US.  We assist the Tarbat Discovery Centre, and Tain Museum.  We contributed toward purchase of historic Ross silversmith work, and the marker for John Ross & the Trail of Tears.
