In September we were joined by Joni Smith, Scottish Affairs Counsellor to North America for the Scottish Government. Joni talked about the importance of the American – Scottish connection and praised the work of American – Scottish organizations in doing all that they do to support the relationship. 

We were joined in September by Gus Noble, President of the Chicago Scots and CEO of the Caledonia Senior Living and Memory Care. Gus told us about the amazing ways that the local community have been rallying together in support of the Scottish Home and how important that support has been to their community. Gus explained how this year they held a virtual highland games and celebration of their ancestry and links to Scotland, it was wonderful.

Also earlier in September we were joined by the brilliant Laura McGhee as we paid tribute to all those affected by 9/11 and her involvement in commemoration events.
