Clan Johnston/e in America participates in various Scottish games and festivals throughout North America as well as other activities which foster awareness of Scottish and Clan history and culture. We publish a quarterly newsletter, the Spur and Phoenix, and collect historical and genealogical information about the Clan and other matters of Scottish interest. We also provide scholarships to study the Scottish arts, such as piping, drumming and highland dancing, and make available to members and others tartan and Clan-related merchandise.
The first meeting of our organization was held in October 1976 at the Stone Mountain Highland Games in Atlanta, Georgia.
Come join us in celebrating our Scottish heritage! Please contact the President if you would like to become more actively involved, or if you have special skills which could be of use to our Clan.
