Port Mòr Burns lunch

The Oban Times - - News -

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.
