On Saturday, July 21st, we had our gathering at the Cambridge Games and then after the games we gathered at the home of Kim and Allan McNeil in Kitchener for some delightful food and entertainment. Suzanne McNeill entertained us with her violin and some wonderful remditions of Scottish airs and some lively reels. It was a wonderful chance to meet and chat with some of our newer members. Even the weather cooperated and we had a chance to sport our new Clan MacNeil T-Shirts. A most enjoyable time was had by all. Special thanks to our hosts and Terry Myles who arrange space for us at the Cambridge Games and kept the visiting members busy with information and tales of Scotland.
On a very sad note, it is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of Ruby Florence McNeill, the beloved wife of our organization founder and President Emeritus, Andrew McNeill who passed away last year. Ruby was a loving wife, devoted mother, a nurse, a Sunday School teacher, girl Guide Leader and last but not least, she was a wonderful friend and a dedicated member of Clan MacNeil in Canada.
May she rest is peace.
Alene M. McNeil
President Clan MacNeil in Canada
