Clan Marjoribanks Society tent at the Greater Greenville Scottish Games
The Clan Marjoribanks Society usually hosts a tent at the Greater Greenville Scottish Games & Highland Festival (Gallabrae), South Carolina in May of each year. This is a particularly special event for our clan, since the location is adjacent to the Marchbanks family lands.
For example, at the 2014 Games there was a Clan Reception on Friday 23rd May evening and at the Clan Marjoribanks Society tent was manned by volunteers on the Saturday. You may find more information about the Greater Greenville Scottish Games & Highland Festival here.
