October 2-3, 2009
Clan MacLaren returned to Laurinburg, NC for the 2009 AGM. We were the Honored Clan at the inaugural Scotch Fair Highland Games on Saturday, October 3, 2009. AGM events included a Council Meeting, formal Clan Dinner and Meeting, plus a presentation of the MacLaren Invernenty Sword replica to the Scottish Heritage Center for our permanent MacLaren exhibit. Our guest speaker for the Clan Dinner was Donald McDonald, founder of the Grandfather Mountain Games. He has significant McLaurin heritage and gave a wonderful talk at the CMSS Dinner in Edinburgh in Nov of 2008. Barbara Gard was elected as the new CMSNA President, and Chuck Lawson was elected to be Vice-President.
