Caledonian Club Statuary Re-dedication
Get out you best tartan plaids and help us celebrate the re-dedication of the statuary commemorating our Scottish heritage and roots.
The ceremony will begin at 2:00 PM on Friday, December 6th.
We would like to see you all for this special celebration.
The statuary, originally located at Patrick’s restaurant, has been relocated to a small park at the corner of Gulfstream and Main Street.
The stones for the statuary were a gift from the City of Glasgow, Scotland; to commemorate the 1886 arrival of Scottish settlers in Sarasota. The statuary was originally dedicated in Sarasota to as part of the City’s hundredth anniversary celebration.
The original arrangements for this gift were coordinated by our very own Caledonian Club of Florida West Member, Bill Wallace.
Bring your friends, bring your neighbors, bring your family but, please be there to help pass our Scottish Heritage to future generations!
