The event featured bagpipers, Scottish clans, Scottish Highland terriers and a reading of the National Tartan Day Proclamation at the town clock that recognizes all the contributions Scots have made to the United States since revolting against the British during the Revolutionary War.  The walk was followed by the blessing of tartans, or the Kirkin 'O' the Tartan, at St. Andrew's Episcopel Church, an event started 200 years ago when the Scottish clan system was outlawed.  Clan members on hand during the parade included the Montgomery's, Mc Duff's and the Duncan's.  Even a Scottish Deer hound was spotted in the crowd, which of course, should never be confused with an Irish Wolf hound.  The Gazette, Bryan Oller
