Burns Supper, Jan 2024

On January 20 the Society celebrated its premier yearly event, the Burns Supper, at Ford's Colony Country Club.  Robert Burns was Scotland's national poet and lover, and Burns Night is celebrated all over the world.  .  This was a gala affair with 100 guests, lads and lassies in their best highland attire.   President Jerry Lelansky recognized several new members. Bob Davis spoke on the Flowers of the Forest, those who  departed us in 2023. And the Williamsburg Pipes and Drums raised the roof with inspiring Scottish tunes.


A traditional Scottish supper began with the procession of the Haggis, the address and toast to the Haggis by Robert Lockwood followed by the traditional paying the piper,  Lynn Newcomer, with a stiff cup of whisky.  

(Historical note:  The oldest known recipe for Haggis begins:  "First, steal a sheep.")


Numerous toasts were offered  to a host of deserving people and causes, including the Lassies and the Laddies by Howard and Carolyn Topp.  An auction, a raffle and Auld Lang Syne wound up the evening
