The Rockford Burns Club invites you to join them for the annual Tartan Day Ceremony on the East steps of Rockford's Veteran's Memorial Hall, 211 North Main Street in downtown Rockford on Saturday, April 2nd at 12:00 Noon.  Mayor Larry Morrissey of the City of Rockford, Winnebago County Board Member Fred Wescott are slated to attend, with performances by Rockford’s own Clan MacAlpine Pipe Band, the 15th oldest Bagpipe band in the US, founded in 1912.  Cake and refreshments will be served immediately following the ceremony in celebration of both Tartan Day and the 157th year of the Rockford Burns Club.  In 1998, the U.S. Senate designated the annual observance of Tartan Day to recognize the role that Scots and those of Scottish descent played in the founding of the United States.
