NEXT GATHERING


Members of the Caledonian & St. Andrew’s
Society will continue to gather using the
electronic app Zoom for several additional
months, due to continuing prohibitions on
large gatherings of people.
Our next gathering is Sunday, June 13th, 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

JUNE PROGRAM
Entertainment for the June
13th gathering will be a
repeat musical performance by balladeer Charlie
Zahm. Charlie entertained
us at our September 2020
gathering. Charlie
normally can be found
performing at games and other venues on the
northeast and Atlantic coast states of the U.S.,
where he weaves magical moments of Scottish
and Irish history and accompanies himself on
guitar. He brings an authentic love and respect
for the music he sings and will draw you into
the stories of his songs. We enjoyed his music
and stories last September and look forward to
hearing him again.
