Clan Menzies was honored as the Distinguished Clan at the 2017 Loch Norman Highland Games & Rural Hill Scottish Festival at Loch Norman in Huntersville, NC (CharloMetro) in April 2017 where the clan also convened its Annual General Meeting. Our President Rory Menzies and his lovely wife Lisa were Guests of Honor for the weekend and were presented a beautiful framed photograph of our beloved Castle Menzies. This photograph was taken by award-winning Scottish landscape photographer and devoted clan supporter Adrian Jenkins.
Best Clan Tent, May 2016
In May 2016, Clan Menzies was again a winner at the now re-titled Mid-Maryland Celtic Festival, in Frederick, Maryland. Clan Menzies won Best Clan Tent for our interesting and informative visual display as well as our enthusiastic visitor experience. As with all our fellow event hosts, we take pride in sharing information about our ancient and important clan, the Castle Menzies Estate and their importance in Scottish and Scottish-North American histories.
Honored Clan in 2016
For the second year in a row, we held our banners high as Clan Menzies was the Honored Clan, this time at the Virginia Scottish Games held over Labor Day weekend in early September outside of Washington, DC. in The Plains, VA. Piped in by our very own society member Keaton Adler and the Lyon College Pipe Band (Arkansas), Clan Menzies led the Parade of Clans around the Clan Village and onto the Parade Field for the Opening Ceremonies. We also held our AGM on that sunny Saturday.
Honored Clan in 2015
Clan Menzies was the Honored Clan at the Maryland Celtic Festival located in Frederick, Maryland in May 2015. George M. Menzies (our VP of North American Affairs, and Trustee of the Menzies Charitable Trust), travelled from Edinburgh, Scotland for the event and led the clan as we marched the Parade of Clans onto the festival parade grounds during the Opening Ceremonies. George was presented a beautiful engraved silver quaich for the Society’s behalf. We proudly display the Quaich at many games.
