Larlee Creek and the “Kirking of the Tartans” (June 3rd)

After a busy weekend of “everything that’s Scottish” what better place to finish up – than where it all began. Join us Sunday evening at one of Perth-Andover’s most historic sites – the 150 year old Larlee Creek Church. Although rarely used, larleecreekchurchspecial considerations have kindly allowed for opening of this building’s historic doors again in 2018 for a service at the Gathering. Many of our area’s original Scottish settlers would have originally set their tired bones down on these same pews as they gave thanks to the new land they had come to. Special to this ceremony will a reenactment of the ancient “Kirking of the Tartans” – hard to explain, but amazing to witness! Bring a bit of tartan if you like and come to the Creek! Gather with us after for wonderful home-made refreshments and a walk around this historic site and cemetery!
