First Paragraph

After a lot of problems, our plans to involve the MacDonald Society in this important event are now in place, thanks to the encouragement of many people. When it seemed that cost would prevent us from having an official display/stall, the Aberdeenshire Library Service generously offered us the use of the main meeting-room at the Brander Library and Museum building in Huntly Town Square. There is a fine MacDonald display case in the Museum full of objects such as costumes from the family's performances of The Pilgrim's Progress and we hope that visitors will go on from there to visit us. Larry Fink's splendid video on MacDonald will be running throughout the event. Ian Blakemore will have his catalogues and his books of MacDonald interest for sale in a separate display and visitors will, of course, be directed between the two. --Vivienne Forrest
