Civic Reception Dumfries

2 September 2010

The Southern Scottish Counties Burns Association (SSCBA) had very kindly arranged a civic reception in the Council Chambers in Dumfries to mark my year as President of the Federation.

Convenor of the Council, Patsy Gilroy, welcomed guests and delivered a very eloquent speech to convey the honour felt by the Council in having ‘one of theirs’ fulfil such a high profile appointment to promote the life and works of a former Dumfries resident, our National Bard, Robert Burns. President of the SSCBA, David Baird also spoke warmly of the pride which Association members felt in having one of their fellow members being the Federation President.
