The 31st Scottish Highland Games will be held on March 1 in Ft. Lauderdale. The photo shown here was taken at a previous Highland Games in Ft. Lauderdale, showing the Clan Cunningham banner. Jim Cunningham and the editor of this publication Cliff Cunningham are at the left of the photo.
As always there will be Scottish food, drink and merchandise for sale. Don't miss the storytelling, and of course the Scottish music on the bandstand stage.
