The Celtic Society of Southeastern Ohio

Based in 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.

 

Next meeting:  12 May 2014
