Terrace Scottish Dancers doing their thing. From left to right

Celebrating Robbie Burns

Scottish poet's birthday brings out haggis, bagpipes and fun

The Terrace Scottish Country Dancers held their 23rd annual pot luck Robbie Burns’ supper on January 24th with 90 people in attendance. Paul Bjorn piped in the haggis and Jock Halley gave the traditional “Address to the Haggis.”

Following a wonderful dinner, Rob MacDonald gave the toast to the Immortal Memory of Robert Burns, the famous Scottish poet, who was born on January 25, 1759.

Without realizing it, the poetry and lyrics of Robert Burns has touched our lives through such common practices as the singing of Auld Lang Syne on New Year’s Eve.

Fans of his poetry are spread all over the world, and each year his birth is celebrated through the hosting of Robbie Burns’ suppers.

Tables stacked, and dance floor cleared, the music began.

From the gentle harp music of the Inverary Harp Ensemble to the more lively tunes from ‘Mc’Dr Fishy, joining in dances and demonstration of Scottish country dances, the entertainment was enjoyed by all.
