A Fond Farewell to

Dale Mackenzie Gross

 

It is with great sadness that we let you know of the passing of Dale Mackenzie Gross.
He was the founding president of our Scottish Cultural Society of St. Petersburg and remained

so until his retirement 3+ years ago.
He was the founder, along with his wife Sara Jean Buie Gross, of Caberfeidh Productions.
Dale was also an Officer and Director of SPIFFS, (St. Petersburg International Folk Fair) for many years.

Our hearts and condolences go out to all of Dale's family and friends.

SPIFFS FAIR MEMORIAL for DALE

Saturday, Oct 26th, 2019     4:00 pm

Following the Parade of Nations & the New Citizen Swearing-in Ceremony, a memorial was held for Dale during the SPIFFS FAIR.  Attendees met  at the waters edge by the Scottish Village.

 

To Quote Kevin Cardwell of

Tampa Bay Celtic Music Fans:

   "When Dale took sick, it left a big hole in our Celtic music scene in Tampa Bay. Dale and Sara Jean seldom made money on these shows; they treated the musicians like royalty.

    Dale told me he did it for the love of the music and sharing the music with the audience.

      I would say may he rest in peace, but I would rather say    

                      may he rest in a non-stop Ceilidh !"
 

   Yours in Celtic Harmony,
   Goody Haines
   President
   Scottish Cultural Society of St. Petersburg, Inc.

SLAINTE' 

It is with heartfelt thanks that we say a grateful Slainte' to Mr. Dale Gross. He has retired as our longtime president of the

Scottish Cultural Society of St. Petersburg.

He and his wonderful wife,

SaraJean Buie-Gross, have done many great things and have been supportive of all things Celtic... including promoting Celtic music through their company...

Caberfeidh Productions.

Dale is also a founder of the Scottish Cultural Society as well as

a member of the Board of Directors at SPIFFS for

many years.
