Rev­ellers beat the weather

Rutherglen Reformer - - Burns Night Celebrations -

The Ruther­glen SNP Con­stituency As­so­ci­a­tion held a Burns Sup­per at Cam­bus­lang Rugby Club to cel­e­brate Scot­land’s na­tional bard.

De­spite the atro­cious weather, there was a fine turnout, al­though prin­ci­pal speaker Humza Yousaf was un­able to at­tend due to the con­di­tions.

Event or­gan­iser and chair­man, Alan McLen­nan, stood in and pre­sented a fit­ting Im­mor­tal Mem­ory to The Bard.

Rod MacCowan pro­posed an ex­cel­lent, witty and very hu­mor­ous Toast to the Lasses and Mar­garet Fer­rier pro­vided a su­perb re­ply.

Gra­ham Hill pro­vided a won­der­ful ren­di­tion of Tam O’Shanter and at­ten­dees were treated to some beau­ti­ful singing of Burns songs by opera singer Frances Coyle and folk singer Ge­orge Fer­gu­son.
