They wore tartan; kilts, shawls, and tartan ties as Waterdown’s Rotary Club gathered at RBG to celebrate Robert Burns Day. The Burns dinner is a traditional commemoration of the life and works of the National poet of Scotland, sometimes called Robbie Burns, and observed worldwide.
The meal was held on Burn’s birthday, January 25th, and consisted of haggis, roast beef, neeps (turnip) and tatties (mashed potatoes). The three-piece band, Scantily Plaid, played guitar, harp and bagpipes to welcome guests into the dining room and to ‘pipe in’ the Haggis. The Carol MacCrimmon Highland Dancers, junior and senior group, kept the crowd entertained. It was an amazing Scottish feast.
