      Scottish Brigade Alumnae Plans for a Final Gathering of the Clan
Mark your Calendar - Save the Date:

The 30th Annual Gathering of the Clan will be held as follows:

Saturday, February 10, 2018, 11 AM - 2 PM

The Junior League

1811 Briar Oaks Lane, Houston, Texas 77027

In 2018, the Scottish Brigade Alumnae Association will celebrate its thirty year anniversary! After the first luncheon in 1988, it met the qualifications to be approved as a non-profit organization in 1989. It provided the membership a chance to continue to recognize Brigade's unique legacy. In addition, it offered a yearly luncheon that gave Brigadiers a chance to renew friendships and participate in awarding college scholarships. The membership is very proud of the thousands of dollars in scholarships that have been received by worthy students during the thirty years of its existence.

It is with sadness, but with a great deal of satisfaction and pride, that the final gathering of the clan is announced. The 30th Scottish Brigade Alumnae Luncheon will be held on February 10, 2018 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the Junior League of Houston. For many years, the gathering had been held in the cafeteria at Austin High School. It was necessary to change the location since the school will be undergoing reconstruction for a brand new building during this time.

Details and a reservation form will be provided in the SBA newsletter to be mailed this December. Brigadiers from the 1970's will be saluted and the Alumnae's thirty-year legacy will be honored along with recognizing the scholarship recipients. More information will be available at

We are hoping that all Brigadiers will be able to attend this final farewell luncheon and salute an organization that definitely has a proud history and has provided priceless memories to its members and to Stephen F. Austin High School.

Brigadier and author Suzanne Morris was among the speakers at the 2017 Gathering of the Clan. Read her perspectives on the Brigade experience and its influence on her new novel, Aftermath.
