CUTHBERT GRANT - SIOL CUDBRIGHT's celebration grove

Alexandria and Nicholas

This GROVE is dedicated to CUTHBERT GRANT Jr and all his descendants and members of Siol Cudbright - Clan Grant - Scotland.
We pay tribute to Grantown and the 250th Anniversary 2015. This Grove is dedicated to Alexandria Horyski, a Canadian Homecoming Ambassador, and her son Nicholas Horyski-Cerros from Winnipeg, Canada, from all their friends and members of RT Burns Club around the world, in thanks for all they do: for the people, for the environment, for spreading the word about Scotland, for always being ready with a kind word and a helping hand to fight for a cause; and to celebrate their return trip to their beloved Scotland in the Homecoming Year, 2009, the first of their family to return, since their ancestors left Scotland for Canada in the 18th century, where they helped set up the famous The Hudson Bay Company.

WE WILL GO HOME ACROSS THE OCEAN, WE WILL GO HOME

SANDRA(ALEXANDRIA) HORYSKI - c. 2009

We will go home across the ocean, we will go home

To a land far away and to most now unknown

Our hearts and soul long for the thistle that is home grown

We will go home across the ocean, we will go home

We sailed to the New World our future most unknown

The harshness of the New World was a reality that set an uncertain tone

To seek fame and fortune was for sure was on many a minds

The site that unfolded before our eyes was like a grand treasure find

The never ending wilderness and winter months proved to be most unkind

So far from family and friends, an ocean and it seemed a lifetime away

Within a wee short time we thought is it worth it, should we all stay

As the brutal snow and cold set in all we could do was to hope and pray

Bonny Scotland did call us back home, the wind carried her cry across the sea

To brave a bold New World , to start a new life with hearts and soul's set free

The furs a plenty, the water like a looking glass, and as far as the eyes could see

Was a mighty great army of soldiers with arms swaying in the wind, the tree

The Highlands call us back home and echo our names recorded for all time

Where have you gone, will you come back home, are you going quite fine

Many are lost forever in time, away from home, their souls cry like a church chime

We will go home across the ocean, we will go home

To a land far away and to most unknown

Our hearts and soul long for the thistle that is home grown

The many Clans left Bonny Scotland with high hopes and dreams for a fresh start

They left many family and friends behind and the heavy hearts made it hard to part

Across the pond seemed like a lifetime away and was like a distant speck on a chart

It's been many a year since the shores of Bonny Scotland were seen

To finally come home and touch the soil seemed like a mere distant dream

We now seek our ancestral home and flow to the sea like a river stream

We will go home across the ocean, we will go home

To a land far away and to most unknown

Our hearts and soul long for the thistle that is home grown

We will go home..........at long last

We are so proud of you Alexandria and Nicholas and hope you will return soon.

Love Rose, Teresa, Keith, Therese, Michael, Janice, Peigi, Deborah Ann and All at RT Burns Club.
