Last Friday evening we had every seat full at St. Peter's Church to celebrate Robbie Burns and Scottish Heritage. We had bagpipes, haggis and the address, a fiddler, a chanter, Scottish songs, a Gaelic song, a snare drummer, a stepdancer, and stories and poems of Robbie Burns followed by tea, scotch cookies and fruitcake in the Hall. There was lots of plaid and Scottish pride!
Below is a video Jan (organizer and MC) posted on her Facebook page along with a screen grab from the video.
