Burn's celebration

Message 3384 · Kate McLellan · 18 Jan 1996 04:27:16 · Top

Murray Driscoll, a member of my dance group will be in St. John's,
Newfoundland during Burn's celebrations. He has not missed the one here in
Saint John, New Brunswick for twenty years and is quite anxious to connect
with one in St. John's, if possible. Murray is a past president of our St.
Andrew's Society as well. Will there be a Burn's celebration in St. John's
this year, and if so I would like to give him the name and address of
someone he can contact with regards to this? Help in this matter would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanx

I sent this relpy to Kate, and then realised that there may be
others who would be interested.

There is indeed a Burn's Supper in St. John's. It takes place at
7:30pm on Saturday 27th. January at the Royal Canadian Legion in
Pleasantville. Tickets are $30, obviously there will be a meal and
speeches, and there will be entertainment. I don't know the full extent of
the entertainment, but I do know that the band 'Corryvreckan' will be
playing, and the St. John's Branch RCDS demo team will be dancing.

Hope this helps. If you need more information don't hesitate to
contact me.
