Thank you to Commissioner for Washington State Colin McCawley for gaining permission from Richard McAuley to share his historical insights on MacAulay (‘son of Aulay’) and Ardincaple.
To all of our Canadian MacAulays, Happy Thanksgiving. May today be a day of thankfulness and kindness.
To all our American MacAulays Happy 4th of July! May you have a wonderful day celebrating your country’s independence.
To all of our Canadian MacAulays a very happy Canada Day! May you, your families and friends enjoy Canada’s 153rd birthday.
It is with sorrow that I share with you the sad news that Lifetime President Donald MacAulay passed away this morning. He was a kind, caring and charismatic man who generously shared his love of Clan MacAulay and contributed greatly to its success.
Chief Emeritus Hector, upon notifying me today, stated the indisputable … “Donald served the clan with distinction.”
Because of the current pandemic there will not be a funeral service. A celebration of his life will take place later this year.
I have extended our condolences to his lovely wife Eileen and family. Please take a moment, in whatever way you feel most appropriate, to give thanks for the life of a great man, Donald MacAulay. He will be deeply missed.
