Celebrating Scottish Roots in Ohio

I found a rather interesting article about a Scottish heritage celebration this weekend in Middletown, Ohio. The three Presbyterian churches are celebrating the Presbyterian Church's Scottish heritage. I'm curious about that Kirkin of the Tartans service. It is described thusly.

The service, which includes a calling out of the Scottish clans followed by a
call for those in the clan of God - the entire congregation - to join, is an
American tribute to the Scottish immigrants who brought Presbyterianism to the
New World.

Apparently, the big Covenant First Presbyterian Church in Cincinnati will be having a similar service next weekend.

Update: Just noticed that this was my 500th post!
