Our Mission

The Scottish American Women’s Society (SAWS) of Washington, D.C., is an organization of American women of Scottish birth or lineage dedicated to perpetuating Scottish and Scottish-American culture and to encourage good fellowship among its members.

With initial funding from its brother lineage organization the St. Andrew’s Society of Washington, D.C.,  SAWS was launched in 2017.

Our Programs

SAWS has moved all activities ONLINE! Covid- 19 has changed how we operate, but we are ever evolving to give our members educational and social programming!

DAMES AND DRAMS

This is a recurring event! Dames and Drams  is our monthly gathering where the membership and interested parties participate in a Zoom happy hour to celebrate our common interests.

VIRTUAL EVENTS

We are updating this portion of our site as we speak! We have a line up of lecturers and performers who are generous enough to participate in our upcoming events!
