The Tennessee Valley Scottish Society (TVSS) was established in 1986 to promote and preserve Scottish culture and heritage by providing the residents of the Tennessee Valley with an opportunity to experience the culture, athletics, and history of Scotland. Formed by a small group of friends who met to celebrate “Hogmanay” (the Scottish New Year celebration), the organization has grown to include over 150 families and individuals. TVSS is a Federally-recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization, governed by a Board of Directors elected from the Membership at large, and an Executive Committee elected from the Board of Directors.
