Anniversary Supper 2024


President Trevor Nicol welcomed all our members and guests present to our 75th Aniversary Supper and carried out the traditional Address to the Haggis. There then followed three hours of varied and enjoyable entertainment.


Dr Ian Moir started the ball rolling with his humorous yet thoughtful Immortal Memory, which was well received by members and guests.


Singer Ian Douglas, accompanied by Sheila Bruce on piano gave us some of Rabbie’s memorable songs throughout the evening, including: 'The Slave's Lament', ‘O Bonie was Yon Rosie Brier’ and ‘Killiecrankie.’


Dr Grant Franklin gave us his take on the relationship between men and women in his Toast tae the Lasses, which was augmented by some words from the Bard, while Lisa Senior responded suitably with some observations of her own.


The whole evening was rounded off with some traditional community singing at the end… and of course ‘Auld Lang Syne.’
