Michigan Scots Gathering

Here are some pictures from the Michigan Scots Gathering on Saturday, October 16, 1999. This was my first experience with a Collector's Gathering, and it was very fun! There was a Scottie Costume Contest, best-dressed live or stuffed Scottish Terrier won. Well, they ALL won. The prize was a huge bag of COOKIES!!! Midget is in heaven today!

I bought a few goodies -- a little Christmas Tree, decorated all in tiny little scotties and bones (see pictures 14 and 15 - you can't see the detail, sorry!). Four scarves/bandanas for Midget. An ornament or two.

The meal was fantastic! Roast pork, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, green beans, sauerkraut/cabbage, salad, cream of ham and vegetable (potato, broccoli, celery, carrot) soup, and pies! Lots of them! And we got to keep our salad plates and soup mugs. They were tempered glass(?) with a scottie etched on them. And there were clay scottie magnets as "favors". Verra cute!
