The Celtic Society of Southeastern Ohio
Cambridge, Guernsey County, Ohio
Our society's purpose is the
preservation of Celtic heritage and tradition. We assist those who are
searching for their ancestral roots; aid young artists interested in Celtic
music, dance, and other arts; support projects related to our cultural
heritage (such as the Kennedy Stone House at Salt Fork State Park); keep our
members up to date on events and news of interest. We wel- come as
members those of a Celtic background (Scottish, Irish, Welsh, Cor- nish,
Breton, Galician, etc.), and anyone with an interest in that heritage
and history. For more information, contact Lyn Alfman at
740-872-3888 or Jim Ferguson at 740-439-3874.
We meet monthly, September
through June, usually at St. John's Episcopal Church, 1025 Steubenville
Avenue, in Cambridge, Ohio, on the second Monday of the month at 7:00
p.m. For special occasions or picnics, the time and venue may
change. (Those attending for the first time should call to confirm the
time and place.) The business meeting is usually first, followed by
refreshments and a program. A newsletter is published three or four
times a year. Annual dues are $15 per year per family.
