History

In 1998, for the 75th Anniversary celebration of RSCDS (Society) and the formation of Glasgow Branch, a group of senior non-dancers plus a few active dancers  attended an afternoon tea dance. They all much enjoyed the social aspects of dancing even if no longer able to dance, and wished to meet on a more regular basis.  The first official meeting of the Seniors' Group was held in 1999 at the Ewington Hotel organised by Ruth Beattie, assisted by Joyce Turkington and the late Dorothy Paterson.
With the passing of time, this event has evolved into four meetings per year, Spring, Summer, Autumn and a Festive Lunch in December, open to all members of Glasgow Branch. The general format is a light lunch (soup, sandwiches, tea/coffee), followed by musical entertainment and/or a speaker.  (The inclusive charge covers the costs of lunch and the meeting.)
