It's on! LPC will purchase 12 different tartans for banners to be displayed at the front of the Sanctuary at the annual Kirkin' of the Tartans beginning next year! We have room for 12 on the dais plus more to be hung between our Sanctuary windows. Each of those banners will consist of 4 different tartans with a sign below listing which Clan and which tartan is on display.
UPDATE: As of Monday, July 24, we have orders for the 12 to be displayed on the dais. Now we'll begin collecting tartans to be hung between our Sanctuary windows.
Anyone wishing to sponsor their tartan may do so by filling out the form found in the Sunday bulletin or by giving the Church the following information: Your name, your Clan name, the specific tartan you want to order, and a check for the cost of $63. Since there is only room to display 12 at the front, this will be on a first come/first served basis. Those who want their tartans displayed and whose orders arrive after the twelve have already been selected will have their tartans hung from the windows. IF we get 24 or more tartans ordered, we can rotate the ones on display at the front from year to year. The deadline for ordering is by noon on Monday, August 14th.
To find your tartan, go to https://www.usakilts.com/11-oz-tartan-cloth.html. Follow the prompts and write down which tartan you want (e.g. Clan Cameron Errracht Modern). Specify on the form in the bulletin and on your check so there will be no mistakes. Kay will order the tartans in time for to make the banners before we celebrate next January.
Our church family word workers are asked to help making the stands. We have one volunteer and need more! Please contact Kay through the church office to volunteer.
