Since 1993 when the Association was launched, many of it's members have travelled to Alexandria regularly and have enjoyed discovering the city itself and visiting nearby places of interest, in particular in Washington D.C.
In the intervening years numerous visitors from Alexandria have travelled to Dundee. While based in Dundee they have also enjoyed visiting local places of interest and other parts of Scotland. They particularly enjoy the Scottish way of life and are always very interested in our culture.
From these visits in both directions the members of both associations have enjoyed making many lasting friendships.
Various groups have also visited Alexandria and in turn groups from there have been welcomed to Dundee. These include the Schools, Music Groups, Sports Clubs and most recently the Rugby Clubs of both cities.
The Association organises a variety of fund-raising and social events for members and friends throughout the year which include recognition of America's major celebrations on Thanksgiving and Independence Day.
The major event of the year in Alexandria is the Annual Scottish Christmas Walk Weekend which takes place in December and is an event designed to mark the City's Scottish ancestry.
The Association has display boards positioned in many locations throughout Dundee which helps to promote awareness of the Association.
Anyone who is interested in the US and its culture is invited to become a member of the Association either individually, as a family or on a corporate basis. The Committee and members of the Association are all very friendly and you will be made very welcome.
