Administrative history

Saint Andrew's Society of Saint John, New Brunswick, was founded in 1798 and is the second oldest Scottish society in Canada (the first being the North British Society of Halifax). The constitution establishes the principal tenets of the society as benevolent assistance to natives of Scotland and their descendants, and cultural longevity through cultural events.

The society has also contributed to the community: in 1916, it donated $1000 to the Patriotic Fund; in 1922, the War Memorial Scholarship; in 1967, funds to the Kiwanis Junior Pipe Band, concert grand piano to University of New Brunswick Saint John; 1973, first of many donations of books to the Saint John Regional Library; 1982 money to the Radiation-Oncology department of the Saint John Regional Hospital; and in 1992 the Society erected St. Andrew's House on University Avenue as a senior citizens' apartment complex and a permanent home for the Saint Andrew's Society.
