Poppy's for Peace and Remembrance  - 4th May 14

 

To the skirl of the bagpipes, this years Chieftain was presented to the gathered clans.

 

The Tatties and the Neeps had been prepared to perfection by our Chef Darren Foster,

what more could anyone want? Once again the St Andrew's Burns Night Supper was by

the agreement of everyone present, a great success.

 

Bob Farquhar delivered a thought provoking and amusing Immortal Memory, debating

how Burns would have voted in the forthcoming vote on Scottish Independance.

Dr Don Drennan gave an extremely amusing toast of the ladies. He was toast when he got home.  

And Sylvia Munro reply was outstanding, funny, witty and reminded all of us lads just

how lucky we really are.

 

Robert Burns wrote many beautiful songs and poems in his short life (37 years) including

'Auld Lang Syne,' sung across the world at New Year, but none is more poignant than, 

'A man's a man for a' that' which concludes

That sense and worth, o'er a' the earth,

        May bear the gree, and a' that.

 For a' that and a' that,
