Robbie Burns Dinner

Clan MacLeod joins Lord of the Isles 
to celebrate Robbie Burns

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere
And gie’s ahand o’thine!
And we’ll tak’ a right guid-willie waught.
For auld lang syne.

Clan MacLeod welcomed many new comers to Robbie Burns

The Clan MacLeod members enjoyed the Lord of the Isles Robbie Burns Dinner, which  featured an open bar, traditional Roast Beef buffet (including haggis) presented by Sugar Mountain Catering, a Toast to the Haggis, a Toast to the Immortal Memory, as well as a Toast and Response to the Lassies.  Once dinner was complete, there was entertainment provided by the Johnston/Black School of Highland Dancing, Piper Jamie McGrath and The Digby Scallops.

Everyone enjoyed the toasts, especially all the information about Robbie Burns from Ian
MacLeod and the tips on how to deal with Lassies and Laddies by Nathan Wishloff and Mary Fox.  Iain MacDonald gave a stirring Toast to the Haggis in broad Scots.

The laddies obliged the Highland Dancers with their version of the Highland Fling.  They may want to brush up on their steps but were not lacking in enthusiasm.

Thank you to the Lord of the Isles for including Clans MacLeod and MacKenzie and welcome to the first time Robbie Burns attendees.  Special thanks to organizers John Todd and Bev MacLeod and emcee Iain Blake.

To Sum Up All
Be Merry I Advise
And as We’re Merry,
May We Be Wise
