In all of my years work­ing con­tract-to-con­tract both here in Canada and abroad, I’ve never worked with a more pas­sion­ate, ded­i­cated, en­cour­ag­ing and wel­com­ing group of peo­ple than what I found at

It was an hon­our and a priv­i­lege to work with such an amaz­ing group of peo­ple and an ex­pe­ri­ence that I will for­ever hold near and dear to my heart.

I’d also like to take a mo­ment to men­tion all of the staff and vol­un­teers at the Glen­garry High­land Games who pro­vide count­less hours ev­ery year to host one of the largest and most suc­cess­ful High­land Games in the world.

Grow­ing up, we al­ways looked for­ward to the Games as a chance to cel­e­brate our Scot­tish her­itage and meet up with friends and fam­ily who made the an­nual pil­grim­age back to Glen­garry to join us in our cel­e­bra­tions. This tra­di­tion wouldn’t be pos­si­ble with­out the hard work and ded­i­ca­tion of all of the folks who in­vest their time, their ex­pe­ri­ence and their love of the Games to pro­mote our her­itage and show­case the very best that Glen­garry has to of­fer.

Fi­nally, I’d like to thank the peo­ple of Glen­garry near and far for their sup­port and en­cour­age­ment. Not a day went by over the sum­mer when I didn’t hear some­one - ei­ther on­line or in per­son - ex­press their grat­i­tude for the work that I was do­ing. Af­ter spend­ing so many years away, I couldn’t imag­ine a bet­ter wel­come home.

I am truly blessed and hon­oured to be part of this amaz­ing com­mu­nity and to have had the op­por­tu­nity to work with such a stel­lar group of peo­ple to pro­mote all that Glen­garry has to of­fer.

Tara MacDon­ald, South Glen­garry
