Chicago Scots, founded in 1845 as the Illinois St. Andrew Society, turns 175 on St. Andrew’s Day (November 30). In honor of our anniversary and the Patron Saint of Scotland this month’s hero is St. Andrew.

St. Andrew is an important part of Scottish history being celebrated for over 1,000 years. He became the Patron Saint of Scotland in 1320 when Scotland became independent and his cross is featured in Scotland's flag. In the late 1700s in North America, a new tradition of gathering on November 30th began as a way to celebrate St. Andrew and the Scottish culture. It also served as a way to connect Scots living away from home to one another and their homeland.

Our online Heroes for Heroes store honors a different Scottish hero each month to raise money in support of the heroes working and living at Caledonia Senior Living during the COVID-19 crisis. The artwork featured is by incredible Chicago artist and friend of Chicago Scots, Davie Lee Csiscko.

Items must be purchased by November 23, 2020!
