Message from the President


Welcome to ClanRossAmerica:
 
ClanRossAmerica is celebrating 40 years as a charitable and educational non-profit organization whose goals include support for cultural heritage sites in Ross-shire, Scotland, and scholarships for CRAmerica members who participate in highland dance, music, athletics, etc.  We all learn more about our Scottish heritage through our newsletters and website, and the links they provide to further news, learning and event announcements. And along the way, we have fun at the Games, renewing friendships and having a good time, dressing in Highland costume, enjoying classical and Celtic Rock music and the dozens of activities at the Games. We are most visible at Highland Games and Celtic Festivals at 37 events across the country - everybody celebrates THEIR heritage - come join us celebrate ours!  
 
As a group, our most important work is supporting and preserving historical artifacts and buildings in Scotland, and building for the future by sharing our heritage through scholarships to children of members.  Visit our website at www.clanross.org for info about these programs and grants.
CRA is a 501c3 non-profit. Your membership donation should be tax deductable.
