Burns Supper


27 January 2006


It was a full hall with a great atmosphere for another very enjoyable Burns Supper hosted by Beth Campbell and Tony McLarney. The evening started on a sad note with a toast to the life of  Peter Buchanan who had played such a large part in last year’s supper and was to have returned had he not died in July. Jack Scorgie of Appin got the supper under way with the Selkirk Grace and after the soup Freda MacGregor gave her spirited and intelligent rendition of Tam o’ Shanter with many joining in. Angus Nicholson then piped in the Haggis which Jack Scorgie addressed with great style. It fell to Bob Hall to propose a toast to the Immortal memory after he had led us through Burn’s short but brilliant life as a man of letters and a great deal more. We had another chance to hear the splendid piping of Angus Nicholson after the Cranachan and Freda entertained us with a very amusing piece about Scotland in Burns day and Scotland now.
