The Story of 50 years of a Clan Society, 1957 - 2007

Clan MacLeod Society in South Australia

South Australia 1982


By 1982 Donald and Meg McLeod were becoming regular pilgrims to the 4-yearly clan Parliaments.

Torquil Roderick 17th of Raasay matriculated Arms of MacLeod of the Lewes which caused quite a bit of consternation among a Clan which for several generations had celebrated a single Head of the Clan.

Activities began to taper off through the following years as picnics and outings, in general were poorly attended, and were being cancelled.  The only reliable functions were the clan dinner and AGM.

Ian MacLeod (Western Australia) was elected national Coordinator, relieving Bruce who had done the role for more than 25 years.  Ian too, would occupy the position for many years and reliably attend Parliaments in Australia’s interest.

By 1985 the serious question of dissolution was put, but members deferred consideration for next year.  The bank balance was $12.89 and wouldn’t buy a meal at the Clan luncheon.

In 1986 the AGM  was delayed while members enjoyed the telecast of the Adelaide Formula 1 Grand Prix.  Members voted to remain active as a Clan Society.  Subscriptions were increased from $4 to $8.

By demanding a higher contribution and commitment the clan set its own challenge to re-invigorate itself.
