Clan Ross was well represented once again in the parade at the Orillia Scottish Festival on Saturday, July 19, this year. Scott Cloutte and Leila (Ross, Montgomery) Cloutte held the Clan Ross banner, while Minerva Teskey, Margaret Montgomery, National President Don Ross, Patricia (Bassett) Ross, Gertrude Teskey, Braydon Smith, Bill Smith, Doug Ross (Webmaster) and Ontario Commissioner Wendy Ross lined up in the background. Ed Swinton joined the group a few blocks down the parade route, and Eldred Cook was discovered in the rumble seat of one of the cars towards the end of the parade. The group photo with the banner was taken by Blair Ashmore, who drove the "Clan Ross" car at the right.
The Ross tent on the Avenue of Clans at Couchiching Park had a fine display of books, pins, badges, sweaters and t-shirts . . . thanks to our Ontario Commissioner Wendy Ross and National President Don Ross. Participation at these events is an added enjoyment for many of our members. [Photographs by Patricia Ross.]
