The 10th annual Kirkin' o' the Tartans will be celebrated at The First Church in Belfast, United Church of Christ at 104 Church St., Belfast, on Sunday, July 20, at the 10 a.m. worship service.

The Kirkin' o' the Tartans originated in the United States by the St. Andrew's Society of Washington, DC in the early years of WWII.

Here in Belfast, the First Church was introduced to this tradition by Dr. Curly Olds of Rockland. We held our first Kirkin' on April 10, 2005 and found it so popular and meaningful to our members and others from the community, that we have continued to do it each year, this year, being our 10th annual event.
