CGSNA Canadian Branch Update – February 2013 Sticky

As we look back on 2011 and 2012, a lot has happened. From a clan perspective, the second quarters of both years were relatively quiet as usual although we did manage have a wee Tartan Day celebration in 2011. However, activities really picked up in the normal way in the third quarters. It started in early July when we left on a trip by car to the Maritime Provinces of Canada, particularly Newfoundland and a visit to the Viking Village at L'Anse aux Meadows.
