An Englishman, A Scotsman and an Irishman walk into a bar and order pints of ale. Upon being served, each finds a fly in his drink.
Repulsed, the Englishman sends back his pint.
The Scotsman gently flicks the fly out of his pint and begins drinking.
The Irishman carefully lifts the fly up by its wings, holds it over his pint and screams, "Spit it out! Spit it out!"
Welcome to InlandNWScots.org, the website of the St. Andrew’s Society of the Inland Northwest. Since 1955, the Society has been active in promoting Scottish heritage and cultural preservation in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. We are a non-profit, non-sectarian organization open to all, without bias to race, color or gender, to anyone of Scottish descent, or any other person who has a strong interest in Scottish heritage or culture.
The St. Andrew’s Society is supported through funds raising events, such as our annual Robert Burns Night Dinner & Dance, and through individual contributions. Our affiliate members, which are other regional Scottish groups that focus on specific areas of our culture, assist our Society and support our mission. For a list of our current affiliate members, check out our Affiliates page. Each of our affiliates is independent of each other, but all interact with each other and with the St. Andrew’s Society to organize events that benefit members and the Spokane area community.
We hope you will browse through our website to learn more about our affiliates and us. Take a look at our newsletter, The Thistle Epistle, and the Calendar for information about our upcoming events. We hope you will join us in celebrating all things Scottish.
