The Scottish Society of Central California had its beginnings in 1982, when those of Scottish descent belonging to the Celtic Cultural Society of Central California decided to form their own organization. In January 1983, the Scottish Society of Central California became a non-profit corporation organized and qualified under the laws of the State of California.

Mission Statement:

The Society’s mission is to create, stimulate, and sustain an interest in Scotland; to educate the public about Scottish heritage; to provide educational and entertaining events that share and promote Scottish culture; to promote goodwill and understanding among its members and the general public and to perform such charitable works as may be reasonably possible and appropriate.
