National Trust for Scotland strengthens Canadian links
On Monday, November 16, three representatives of the National Trust of Scotland, the largest conservation charity in Scotland, attended a luncheon with members of the Montreal Scottish community held in the headquarters of the Macdonald Stewart Foundation located in Forget House, a historic Golden Mile mansion on Sherbrooke St.
The McEuens' principal purpose in establishing the McEuen Scholarship Foundation was to forge and maintain strong links between Canada and their native Scotland. So it was a pleasure for McEuen Foundation president John H. Aylen to attend the function, meet Simon Skinner, the CEO, Mark Bishop, the head of development, and Rebecca Goodwin from the National Trust. To mark the occasion, Aylen presented them with copies of Revive and Grow Strong, the story of the McEuens and the Scholarship Foundation. The book is available on Amazon.ca and a link is on the scholarship website at www.mceuenscholarship.com.
