Hello to you all. I hope you are well.

Some sad news regarding a long time member, Rosemary Bowlby who passed away. Lew Bowlby, a long time convener, lost his beloved wife Rosemary after an extended illness. Lew was the convener that signed me up to join SDFA many years ago. Lew, on behalf of the Executive Committee and myself, please accept our heartfelt condolences. Lew’s address is : PO Box 304, East Wilton, Maine 04234

Many Scottish Games will be going on as the summer progresses and I hope you can all attend as many games as possible. I would ask that you consider becoming a convener. WE NEED YOU! There are many games SDFA is not represented at and that is a shame. Please consider becoming a convener.

I have moved! I have left Florida for Pittsburgh, PA. My daughter and 5 year old grandson moved there so Abi could take a position at the University of Pittsburgh. Hopefully, I will be able to convene games here in Pennsylvania and Ohio. If you can help me, please let me know.

SDFA membership is the largest in our history. However, a few non-renewals are out there. If you have not renewed your membership for 2023, please consider renewing. We have spoken to a few members who stated they simply forgot to renew. I hope that is the case for those who have not renewed yet.

I am keeping this brief but will be in touch again soon. Thank you for your membership. You are vital to the success of SDFA.
