Clan Cameron assembled its members from near and far at the 68th annual CNY Scottish Games and Celtic festival. Skies threatened throughout the day. But the rains held off.

Two Outtakes:






March of the Cameron Men - 1st Verse
by Mary Maxwell Campbell
1829


Cha'n 'eil òganach treun de chloinn Chamrain gu léir,
Nach téid deònach fo Bhrataich Lochial;
Gu buaidh no gu bàs 's bidh iad dìleas 's gach càs,
Oir géill cha d'thug Camranach riamh.

There's many a man of the Cameron Clan,
That has followed his chief to the field;
He has sworn to support him, or die by his side,
For a Cameron never can yield.

Til next Year - "Slàinte mhòr agad!"
