Mar 05th 2016   Burns Supper

PiggeryBrae burnsOur Burns Supper was a great success and very well put together by our Social Convenor, Past President John McKillop.   Hon.Past President David Barnett chaired the event and introduced the audience to our artists for the evening.
Haggis- Whistled in Will.McArthur    Haggis Bearer- Alex Latimer      Haggis Toast- Kenny Wilson

Reply tae Lassies - Janis Hughes     Vote of Thanks - David Barnett
Music by 3 members of local folk band PiggeryBrae - Jim Ferguson, Alastair MacFarlane & Will McArthur
Kenny Wilson a Past President of Kirkhill BC is also a Past president of Bridgeton Burns Club and tonight he got our evening off to a great start with the Toast tae the Haggis.  Kenny also had the main toast of the evening, the Immortal Memory, which was excellent, he certainly knows his stuff. To round off Kenny's contribution he entertained us with the satire poem Holy Willie.
Jim Torrance a Past President of Halfway & District BC had the company in stitches with his hilarious Toast tae the Lassies. This was followed by the Reply tae the Lassies by Janis Hughes a member of Kirkhill BC and she ably replied to Jim's toast and gave the lassies in the audience plenty to laugh about as she 'set-about' the men.
The whole evening was interspiced with excellent music from PiggeryBrae who thoroughly entertained the audience.
A great deal of work went on behind the scenes and sincere thanks goto May McKillop for organising the food and thanks also to her helpers Ann Phillips, Eileen McArthur, Rena & Ashley Hoggan.
Tonights Chairman David Barnett conducted the whole evening admirably and had a very easy job at the vote of thanks, such was the standard set by everyone at the top table. Nonetheless the vote of thanks gave the chairman the opportunity on behalf of the guests to show their appreciation to all of the artists.
