NEXT GATHERING


Members of the Caledonian & St. Andrew’s

electronic app Zoom for several additional
months, due to continuing prohibitions on
large gatherings of people.
Our next gathering is Sunday, August 8th, at
2:00pm. An e-mailed link will be sent to
everyone who has computer access a few days
in advance of this date. You can also join by

SUMMER EVENT
Since the Caledonians are not yet allowed to
have in-person gatherings at the church where
we have been meeting, everyone is invited to a
Lawn Party on Sunday, August 15th, at 2:00
p.m. at the home of the McFaddens. The
weather tends to be fine at this time of year
and we think an outdoor gathering will be a
pleasant way to see each other in person. For
the safety of everyone in these difficult times,
we respectfully ask that people who attend
have been vaccinated for COVID-19.
The McFadden’s address is 12325 40th Ave NE,
Seattle, WA 98125. We will provide a light
lunch.
Please RSVP to the McFaddens at
rmcfadde@mindspring.com or call 206-714-
2601 so we know how many to expect and how
much food to make available.
