O! What a Glorious Sicht!

Tuesday 19th January 2010

As a welcome break from the round of Immortal Memories I had the pleasure of stabbing the ‘wee beastie’ at the Kirkcudbright Rotary Club’s Burns Supper in the award-winning Selkirk Arms Hotel. Club members provided all the main speeches, the highlight being Anne Chaudry spirited plug for the lassies despite being vastly outnumbered by male Rotarians.

She wasn’t even cowed by the threat of the whistling blade that could ‘sned heids like taps o’ thristle.’ Having only started as a feature last year in recognition of the Year of Homecoming, the Burns Supper is sure to remain a regular fixture in the Club’s programme. Hopefully that is also the experience of other groups and organisations which started some Burns-related activities only last year but intend to run them again in the future.
