COMBINED CLANS DAY

4th OCTOBER 2008

CAMBRIDGE

Dear fellow Clansmen,

Our luncheon gathering this year is to be held at the Union Church Hall Cnr of Bryce and Queen Streets in Cambridge, and hosted by CLAN FRASER. who have no representation in the North Island have been invited to host this day. Alistair Fraser, the Clans Commissioner along with Ross Fraser, Secretary and Editor will be travelling up from Christchurch to be with us. Their intention is to have CLAN FRASER fully represented at all our events, so if you know of any FRASERS , I ask you to make it your business to invite them along.

CLAN FRASER

I remind you too, as to why this day was set up 15 years ago. It was to promote our Scottish Heritage around our district, promote and support the forming of new Clans, and along the way increase each of our clans membership. I urge you to use this opportunity to promote your Clan, pick up a phone book, canvass the area, include Hamilton, invite all of your fellow clansmen to attend this day.
