An Evening of Celebrating Robert Burns

The re-scheduled Burns Night was successfully held Saturday, 2/27 at the Fredericksburg Country Club. We were entertained by the Eagles Pipe Band of the University of Mary Washington.

Our Welsh cousins assisted in festivities. Bob Roser piped in the Haggis and Cindy Roser delivered the “Ode to the Haggis.” Later in the evening Deborah Jensen and Mary Triola of the Welsh folk group, Moch Pryderi performed for us.

Avril Bishop gave a heartfelt Immortal Memory of Robert Burns. Preston Simms kept as Master of Ceremonies kept the evening running smoothly. It was a great evening of superb entertainment, excellent food and wonderful company.
