The Scottish Studies "Oor Club" is held each month at noon at the Duke of York pub in Toronto (steps from the St. George subway station). Guest speakers give presentations on a variety of topics of interest to members of the Scottish Studies Foundation and others interested in the things that Scots in Canada and overseas are getting up to. The presentations usually lasts about an hour (pronounced "oor" in Scots), hence the name. Everyone is invited to attend as the meetings are open to all.
The next meeting of “Oor Club” for the 2014-2015
season will be on Friday, October 3, 2014 at 12 noon
at the “Duke of York” pub on Prince Arthur Avenue,
steps from the St.George Subway. We will
have the pleasure of presenting Bill Davidson, Scottish
Foundation Board member and President of the Scottish
Bill (pictured above) was a Flight Captain with CP Air where he flew 747
aircraft before retiring after 40 years of flying.
Bill is extremely interested in Genealogy and in the early
'70s had his DNA tested and was surprised to discover
that one of his famous ancestors was a Scot named
“Souter Johnny” who was Robert Burns drinking buddy
in the poem "Tam O’Shanter."
We look forward to seeing you on October 3rd.
