Welcome to The St. Andrews Society of Connecticut
The St. Andrew's Society of Connecticut welcomes all who wish to share their love of Scotland, Scottish heritage and culture. Membership is open to all, you don't have to be Scottish to belong.
Throughout the year members and guests gather together to celebrate Robert Burns' birthday and for a family picnic.
A tradition of "good Works" and "to relieve the distressed" are common threads that connect all St. Andrew's Societies and underlie our goals. The St. Andrew's Society of Connecticut is a nonprofit, all volunteer, charitable organization. Since our inception, over $45,000 has been given to various charities here in Connecticut (such as the CT Food Bank and Operation Fuel) and in Scotland (such as the Aberlour Child Care Trust and Army Benevolent Fund). In addition, over $30,000 has been awarded in scholarships for the study of various aspects of Scottish culture, such as dance, bagpipes, Gaelic singing, Dance judging, etc..
The Society produces a newsletter The Caledonian 3-4 times a year. We have a Library which contains over 500 books, videos, audio tapes and other information. Members are entitled to borrow library items. We have genealogy resources for those members interested in tracing their families.
