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.

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.
