Port Mòr Burns lunch
MEMBERS of Port Mòr Lunch Club paid tribute to Scotland’s national bard at a Burns’ Lunch at their Port Charlotte venue.
Everyone was welcomed by club member Mike Senior who chaired the proceedings and the Selkirk Grace was honoured by Trevor Harvey.
The ‘great chieftain’, carried aloft by hostess Debbie Mack, was piped by James MacEachern to pride of place where it was lustily addressed by the knife-wielding Seonaid Baker.
I proposed the toast to the Immortal Memory and John MacIntyre attended to ‘the lassies’ with his customary good humour. This brought a ready response from club member Moira MacGillivray who, as well as being the moving force behind the event, poetically put Tam o’ Shanter in his place.
Rona MacKenzie fulsomely praised the organisers and the participants including singers Bronwen Currie, Lynn MacDonald and Andrew McCowan, whose selection of Burns’ favourites went down a treat.
