SEPTEMBER 22-24, 2022


Come to the Gathering and enjoy the Ceilidh with entertainment by Carl Peterson and our band, participate in the Annual General Meeting with a session on ancestry, and attend the Banquet on Saturday night and hear the address to the Haggis!

There’s time for sightseeing, too.  Visit the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences (NCMNS), the oldest established museum in North Carolina and the largest museum of its kind in the Southeastern

United States.  With about 1.2 million visitors annually, it was the state’s most popular museum of historic destination among visitors.

The North Carolina State Museum was created in 1879, by combining two existing state-owned collections of geologic and agricultural specimens.  The museum’s collections, outreach and education programs, and status grew over the next 60 years.  The collection now contains more than 1.7 million specimens of amphibians, reptiles, birds, fish, mammals, invertebrates, invertebrate and vertebrate fossils, plants, geology and meteorites.  No matter what your age, there is something in this museum to enjoy. The admission is free.

A visit to Raleigh, N.C. is more than a trip to a blossoming Southern metropolis – meeting attendees will feel enriched and energized the instant they’re warmly welcomed by smart, savvy locals! Raleigh’s bright minds head top-tier technology, education and life science institutions; its artists create a bevy of cultural and culinary touchstones; and its storytellers proudly carry on the collective heritage of a rich, historic capital city. Attendees can invigorate their senses by sampling the many flavors of cutting-edge Southern cuisine enhanced by artisan craft brews and spirits; get their toes tapping to the sounds of emerging music and bands, as well as rollicking bluegrass festivals and more; discover gifts and treasures from local boutiques, including many handmade and custom designs for trulyeclectic finds; and join in broadening their horizons through an enticing
array of visual and performing arts exhibitions.
