RIP, Jerry

Our Chief was laid to rest, yesterday. Jerry’s eldest son, Jared gave his Dad’s eulogy. It was very touching. The love of the family for Jerry was quite evident.

Jerry was a passionate man who loved his God, family, country and his Scottish heritage.

Charlotte arranged for Rev. Larry Glasgow to officiate the service. Ray Scott, Director of UMW Eagles Pipe & Drum Band played the bagpipes.

Rest in Peace, Jerry. We'll miss you until His Kingdom Comes.

Alexandria Scottish Christmas Walk

It was a great weather day for the Alexandria Scottish Christmas Walk. There were nearly two hundred units in the parade. It's such a great way to start the Yuletide season!
