Clan Logan's tartan celebration
Did you know that each year, on April 6th, tartan day is celebrated all over Canada? On this very special day, we celebrate the declaration of Arbroath that was signed in 1230.We demonstrate our pride by wearing our tartans, sing and dance to the tune of bagpipes. This year is a difficult one in terms of events so I had the idea of celebrating tartan day with our clan through zoom.
The weekend preceding tartan day was Easter and the day itself fell on a Tuesday this year. To make sure we got the best attendance, we chose April 10th, 2021. It was our first tartan day event and I co-hosted with James C.Logan, President of the Clan Logan Society International. The purpose was to create a little event that would allow all our members to come together, share and have a fun time. I created a short presentation that showed how tartan day was celebrated in Canada, how tartan was made, presented a few tartan basics and presented our Logan tartans and those from our different Canadian provinces. We concluded with conversation time and a nice little toast at the end. We had many participants show up for the event including our very own representative from Ontario, Patrick Dionne-Kuno. We also had William Petrie, Sylvie Thériault and Jo-Ann Tuskin from CASSOC(Clans and Scottish Societies of Canada) who came to support our clan. Caroline Polcsak, one of the organizers of the Montreal Canada day parade came. She has always been supportive of Clan Logan through the years. It was very nice to have an opportunity and context to meet up with members. We would like to thank The Clan Logan Society International for their cooperation on this event and all those who came to encourage us.
