The Java St. Andrew Society (JSAS) was founded in 1919. The Society aims to celebrate Scotland and all things Scottish here in Jakarta. From smaller gatherings for a wee swallie to ceremonious extravaganzas such as the annual JSAS Charity Ball we bring opportunities for everyone to raise their glasses and toast Bonnie Scotland. With a skirl o' the pipes and a swish o' the kilt we urge you to dree oot the inch as ye hae done the span.
A message from the Chieftain
Last year was a momentous year for Scotland and a successful year for JSAS. Thanks to the great efforts of immediate past Chieftain Brian Proudfoot and his hard working committee the society was able to donate substantial sums to local charities. Of course all that hard work has to be married with sponsorship and involvement from our members and their guests. We are actively seeking sponsors for this year's events (see below for details) and invite you all to save the following dates:
- Whisky tasting - 19th September 2015
- St Andrew's Ball - 28th November 2015
We'll have further details of all our 2015-2016 events coming to this page soon.
Note that we are running an ongoing raffle to be drawn at the Whisky Tasting where for the main prize we are giving away a table of 10 for the ball. The money raised from this raffle will go towards Scott Thomson's efforts - see flyer above - and watch out for a fantastic auction prize and other surprises at the ball. Tickets for the ball go on sale at the Whisky Tasting night.
Meanwhile, get behind Scott's Becak charity ride - details above to sponsor!
