Our 2014 Midsummer Celebration of the Life and Work of Robbie Burns
This year we broke with tradition and held our annual celebration of the Life and Work of Robbie Burns close to Midsummer's day. This was done by request of members who do not spend January in South Carolina and have missed previous Burns Nights. The experiment was a success and no fewer than 80 members wives and guests attended the celebration. Below you will find photos and videos to remember the celebration which was hosted by Graeme and Anna Dalziel. Additional photos, including the sunset above and videos kindly provided by Mike Moffitt.
Here are the photos, the individual speaker videos are below. Enjoy !
