The Friends of the Scottish Museum held their 16th Annual Burns Night Dinner on January 21st. We wish to thank businesses in Franklin for support in fund raising efforts for the Museum: Buttonwood Inn, the Franklin Golf Course, Books Unlimited, Jim Anderson Celtic Carvings, Art Pelsh Heather Nursery, April’s Florist, Blannie Robinson Artists’ Studio, the Caledonia Swing Band and Angel Hospital. Members of Boy Scout Troop 298 were our servers.
We also raised funds for an exhibit in memory of Walter Taylor, our senior docent, who passed away this past November. Anyone wishing to contribute to this fund may do so by sending a check to: SueAnn McMaster, Treasurer, Friends of the Scottish Tartans Museum, 329 Hillview Drive, Franklin.
The Scottish Museum is supported by people of Scottish heritage and civic interest. We had visitors from Atlanta, Charlotte and Asheville as well as folks from Macon County at the Burns Night Dinner. The dinner is held worldwide every year and here in Franklin at Tartan Hall on the Saturday evening closest to Burns,’ birthday, January 25th. This was his 253rd birthday.
