Also speaking Thursday will be Shelia Hoh, president of the Scottish Society of the Louisiana Highlands, which is based in Shreveport. She will be joined by Linda Carlisle, treasurer of the Scottish Society. Hoh will present information about the upcoming 20th Annual Scottish Tartan Festival, which will be held Saturday, April 23 from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at Scotland Farms in Minden (224 La. Hwy. 518, Minden).
Hoh is a retired elementary school teacher of 27 years with Caddo Parish Schools. She became involved with the Scottish Society of the Louisiana Highlands and the Scottish Tartan Festival back in 2004 and has been an avid supporter of the group ever since. Hoh has served as chairman of the Scottish Tartan Festival for several years.
Hoh will speak to the group on the upcoming Scottish Tartan Festival and how it grew from a “picnic” on the farm of Dr. Alan Cameron to the full-fledged event it has become today, welcoming up to 2,000 attendees each spring. She will speak about the significance of the date chosen for the festival and the rich heritage it represents.
Hoh encourages all Lions attending Thursday’s meeting to show their Scottish pride and wear tartan (plaid).
