The Scottish American Society of Palm Beach County was formed by Scottish immigrants and Americans of Scottish descent in February 1984. They came together to promote the study of Scotland's language, history, literature and music, and to support any movements favorable to the continuance of Scottish customs, sports, dancing, dress and the like. You are cordially invited to attend meetings and join with us in a celebration of all things Scottish.

The meetings are held at The Church of the Holy Guardian Angels:, 1325 Cardinal Ln, Lantana, FL., 33462. . SASPBC meets on the third Friday evening at 6:30 PM of each month. Normally we begin with a light dinner and refreshments. The actual meeting being from 7 - 8+ PM. Always check the web site for any updates. If you have an interest in Scottish traditions, history and culture, a cup of tea and a hearty welcome awaits you.

Peter and the Haggis Peter

Peter Spiller

A true Scottish Gentleman.

His favorite part of the Burns' Dinner was bringing in the Haggis.

We will always remember him with a smile.
