The annual Kirkin of the Tartans ceremony will be held this year, as usual, at First Presbyterian Church, Franklin, at the 10:00 am Worship Service, on June 17th. Church Community Relations Committee Co-Chairperson, Jim Geary, announced that, “Even though the Taste of Scotland festival will be missed by everyone this year, the Kirkin has been a part of Presbyterian tradition for sixty-five years. We will continue that tradition this year.”
Geary also commented that First Presbyterian Church hopes 2013 will see the return of the Taste of Scotland community festival, and that the church plans to make the Kirkin ceremony an integral part of any future festival.
