Eastwood Rotary's Annual Burns Supper took place on Friday February 9th, 2018 at Williamwood Golf Club.
A terriific evening's entertainment, hosted by President Ronnie Munn, saw David Stafford address the haggis, Colin Hunter provide the Immortal Memory, Steve Malloy provide the Toast the Lassies, Anne McGuire deliver Reply for the Lassies and Barbara Grant provide the final thank yous.
Throughout the evening, Colin led the company while singing with his old band, "Half a Sixpence". The full band are known as the "Fu' Shilling" and have played together since the 80's.
An evening of celebration of the Bard, wit and humour was enjoyed by all.
Our Antiques Valuation fundraiser for the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice in Glasgow raised £1,243 after all costs were deducted.
A huge thank you is owed to Anita Manning and the team from Great Western Auctions for all of their hard work on the day and to the Eastwood Rotary Club team for manning the car park, the cafeteria and the valuation room and keeping the crowds in check!
And a final thanks to East Renfrewshire Council for the venue, the beautiful Eastwood House.
The club's Annual Burns Supper was held at Williamwood Golf Club on Friday 29th January. Our President Margaret got the show off to a 'bang' when she welcomed the top table. Ronnie Munn addressed the Haggis while David Stafford delivered the Selkirk Grace.
Colin Hunter, one of our newer members, started the formal part of the evening with an inspired Immortal Memory. This was followed by an amusing Toast tae the Lassies from Steve Malloy to which Catherine Stewart responded in spirit with The Reply. An excellent Tam O'Shanter by Colin Hunter followed a musical interlude by Neil Brunton. The President led the party in Auld Lang Syne before wishing everyone a safe journey home.
