The Lord Strathspey

THE LORD STRATHSPEY – GRANT CLAN IN SCOTLAND WILL VISIT GRANTS OLD MILL – 2012

Our Executive Board of The St. James Assiniboia Pioneer felt it would be a most amazing event to invite THE LORD STRATHSPEY OF THE GRANT CLAN IN SCOTLAND to Grants Old Mill for CUTHBERT GRANT DAY 2012 and he would get the opportunity to meet many Cuthbert Grant Descendants and we could have a gathering of sorts.


I was most honored to meet Lord Strathspey in Edinburgh at the Gathering of The Clans with my son Nicholas and we had spoken of such a possible meeting as The GRANT CLAN in Scotland had a keen interest in Cuthbert Grant and the Red River GRANTS.

Well in my mailbox yesterday was a handwritten letter from THE LORD STRATHSPEY and here is a few words from his letter,

*************************************************

IT IS A GREAT HONOR TO BE INVITED TO ATTEND GRANTS OLD MILL IN 2012 AND JUDY AND I WILL BE DELIGHTED TO ATTEND. I REMEMBER MEETING YOU AND YOUR SON IN EDINBURGH AND LOOK FORWARD TO RENEWING OUR AQUAINTANCE NEXT YEAR.

UNTIL THEN MAY I SEND MY BEST WISHES TO YOU AND ALL CUTHBERT GRANT DESCENDANTS……YOUR KINDSMAN….STRATHSPEY


**************************************************

We will be planning a huge GRANT CLAN GATHERING at GRANTS OLD MILL IN JULY 2012 and more details will be posted as we near the date in 2012. We will encourage all CUTHBERT GRANT descendants to attend and help spread the word as we are hoping LORD STRATHSPEY will make our CUTHBERT GRANT GROUP an OFFICIAL SEPT OF THE GRANT CLAN IN SCOTLAND as he did this past year for the CHEROKEE NATION in the US
