NEWSLETTER No. 72 January 2019
WELCOME. NEWS UPDATE. We now have our official registration from OSCR we are now an independent charity with our own constitution. Membership cards have arrived from the printer and are being distributed to our existing members. We hope that everyone who has supported us while we have worked as a trust will continue to support us in our new SCIO. The procedure has been relatively simple although the paperwork kept us busy over the winter months and we are glad that part of the process has been completed.
MEETING UPTo give members a chance to meet each other and perhaps encourage others to come along to join us we plan to have two meetings this year.

STORIES IN STONE no 1

Against the north wall of the kirkyard is this ornately carved memorial to
Scottish artist William York MacGregor (1855 - 1923) . The son of a Glasgow ship builder William studied at the Glasgow School of Art and established his own studio in Bath Street, where an informal group of young artists would meet. They were later to become known as 
"THE GLASGOW BOYS" William being slightly older earning himself the title of " Father of the Glagow Boys". Having suffered from asthma most of his life he moved to live at Albyn Lodge in Bridge of Allan which by then had earned a reputation as a health spa. William York MacGregor died in 1923 and was buried in the Old Kirkyard at Logie
