HAMER, S.C. – Sitting on handmade, straight-back wooden pews meant for a smaller generation were more than 40 people in the 185-year-old Pee Dee Presbyterian Church, many wearing tartan prints, gathered for the annual Kirkin o the Tartans event to remember their Scottish heritage and ancestors.

The Presbyterian tradition is a Scottish-American tradition to bless the families, and their tartans. The traditional, uniquely colorful plaid prints native to the Scottish Highlands, represent different clans or families and were donned by several that gathered in the church Sunday.
