Message from the President
Welcome to ClanRossAmerica !!
ClanRossAmerica, or CRAmerica for short, is in the business of supporting the contributions of Clan Ross to the US and the world – past, present & future… and along the way, having a very good time.
As a group, we are most visible at Highland Games and Festivals around the country, with a welcome for all, but an especially warm welcome for members. We cheer on the athletes (Dean Ross !!), march in the parade of tartans, trade stories at the tent, and sing along during the ceildah.
As a group, our most important work is supporting and preserving Scottish historical artifacts and buildings, and build for the future through scholarships to children of members. We assist the Tarbat Discovery Centre, and Tain Museum. We contributed toward purchase of historic Ross silversmith work, and the marker for John Ross & the Trail of Tears.
