The first meeting of the Scottish Cultural Society was a discussion of the poetry of Robert Burns, Scotland's most famous poet, and his popularity in Russia through the translations of the Russian poet Samuil Marshak.  Bill Parsons, Professor Emeritus of History at Eckerd College lectured on this topic on September 17, 2022, at the Russian

American Club in Gulfport, and selections of Burns' poetry  were read in English and Russian  by members and friends of the Scottish Cultural Society and the Russian American Club.  Those in attendance were also treated to Scottish music associated with Burns, and Scottish and Russian refreshments.  The next event for the Scottish Cultural Society will be the SPIFFS Folk Fair in Albert Whitted Park on October 20-22.  See page 2 for details.
