Our purpose is to promote intellectual, social and charitable contacts by and for Americans and their families living in Central Scotland. Did you know that there are over 20,000 North Americans living in the UK today? For over 35 years, AWCCS has provided contacts for people from or associated with North America in the Central Scotland region. Visit our site and find out more about our aims and activities. Please see our movie trailer under "join us" for a quick preview of who we are..
The origins of the AWCCS go back to the early 1970s, when the wives of employees at Santa Fe, a supply company for the off-shore oil industry, began to hold informal lunchtime gatherings. Please click on the title "History of the Club" to see more.

Every one thought we were a wee bit crazy because we decided to take our one year old toy poodle with us on an extended six week trip to America in Winter 2014. The UK now has a pet passport scheme and we decided to give it a try. Please join us on our journey.
Artist and art tutor Susan Forsyth gives an up close and personal introduction to the Scottish Colourists at Kirkcaldy Art Gallery at our February visit. AWCCS members and friends were (almost all) inspired to pick up paintbrushes!
