In 1996 Mackie Westbrook, a past president of our society, wrote a history of our presidents from our founding in 1859 to 1884. We're happy to present that history to you here, with his kind permission, in PDF form. Just click here. Thanks, Mackie!
The March 13, 2017, Members Meeting has been cancelled due to weather. Stay home, stay warm, stay safe.
Last night's whisky tasting was a great success. We hope you'll join us next spring when we do it again!

Online ticket sales for our November 14, 2016 whisky tasting are now open to the general public. Member pre-sales have been brisk, so remaining seats are limited.
This month we explore "Selections from Bruichladdich.”
With much sadness we report that long-time member Bruce McGarigle died on September 6, 2016 at the age of 84.
A memorial service will be held for Bruce on Friday, Sept. 16th at Mount Carmel Lutheran Church, 8424 W. Center St., Milwaukee. Visitation will be from 9–11am, with service at 11am. Burial will be at Highland Memorial Park, 14875 W. Greenfield Ave., New Berlin, following lunch.
Bruce's wife Karen has asked that as many members as possible come to the service to honor him, kilted of course. We would like to meet at the church at approximately 10:00am.
Further details here.
A great Scottish kick-off to summer.
Here are some great photos from last Friday night's President's Dinner at the Wisconsin Club's Country Club. It was a grand affair! [Photos by Kevin Hansen and Cindy Hansen.]
