Al Forrester Memorial
The 2013 Modesto Highland Games were dedicated to our friend and colleague, Al Forrester, who lost his battle to cancer, on Thursday, May 30th. 2013. Al was 77 years old.
His enthusiasm in producing and developing our yearly Modesto Highland Games Commemorative Program was unparalleled. Al's long career as a Printer always gave the Society a handsome program every year.
His many friends in the Scottish, Irish and Celtic Communities from near and far will miss this talented man. He was a friend to us all.
Thank you friend for letting us get to know you and spend time with you, these many years. May you now rest in peace. Thanks for the memories.
Vicky Wolff, Chief St. Andrew's Society of Modesto
The 32nd Modesto Highland Games
The Modesto Highland Games was a great success, with great music and lots of fun! However, fewer than 10 people put this on, with four doing the most work. We really need more members who can help. There were several things we were not able to do this year due to lack of participating members. If you are in the Modesto area, consider joining up to help put on the games in 2014 and have some fun during the year as well.CBS News report on the 32nd Annual Modesto Highland Games
