The Friends of the Scottish Museum wish to thank the Main Street businesses for their support of "Burns Night," held on Saturday, Jan. 19. We also greatly appreciate, as always, the use of Tartan Hall for this event. The Presbyterian Church congregation has added quite a few new banners along the hall. No other site in Western North Carolina could enhance the occasion better.
We thank Boy Scout Troop #298 (Rick Moninghoff and Bill Edwards, leaders) for serving the meal and to the Troop Committee for cleanup. We appreciate Martha Peek, the chef from Angel hospital for the elaborate Scottish menu she prepares, and to Sue Ann McMaster for making scones for everyone.
To Arthur Hays from Murphy, for his recitation of "Ode to a Haggis," to Matt Newsome of Sylva for the "Immortal Memory" of Robert Burns, and to Chuck and Lois Coburn from the museum for their "Toasts to the Lads and Lassies," we extend special thanks.
Eleanor and Lloyd Swift,
Chairs of the 17th Annual Burns Night Dinner
