In Feburary 2007, the seeds of what is now the Scottish Society of the Inland Empire were sewn when society
secretary,Bob Leeton approached Bob Goss,Wes Ray,and Cameron Tillery about starting a Scottish Society
in the Inland Empire.It did not take long for the germination to take place and they had their first meeting in
Alta Loma shortly afterward. The 'Founding Four' agreed to serve as an interim Board of Directors until membership
and interest increased. Officers were selected and piper,Cameron Tillery,owner of R.P.Blandford and Son,LTD;
a Scottish import store,was named as advisor.Two more meetings were held at Blandford and Son working out the
mission statement and membership forms and by the fourth meeting,held at the Royal Falconer,there were twelve
people in attendance.A new board was elected and since that time membership has swelled to over 170 members.
