Frank Maurer & the Tartan Stone

Frank Maurer, Californian, using only a mallet and chisel, has hand carved a Stone native to each state (in Kansas, that would be limestone) and presents it in a special ceremony. Frank will be at Midwest Historical & Genealogical Society, 1203 North Main, Wichita, KS to hold this ceremony for Kansas on August 14 at 11:00 a.m.
During the ceremony he covers some of his personal life history, his Scottish genealogy, his DNA history and the history and future development of the Tartan Day celebrations. The Stone will contain engravings of all eight official state symbols, the words "Tartan Day" and other carvings specific to Kansas.
The ceremony will take place outdoors in order for the Caledonian Pipes and Drums to have room to march and play in honor of Scottish history. A short reception will be held after the presentation in the main room of the library. All are welcome.
