Successful Bonnie Robbie Burns Dinner and Upcoming Student Competition

Submitted by Elaine Sinha

Robbie Burns Dinner a success! 

Tobermory had its first Robbie Burns dinner and it was a great night full of amazing food (yes, the haggis was delicious!), excellent bag piping, great poems ending with some fun dancing.

Thank you to everyone that worked in the kitchen, assisted in putting the entire event together and to everyone who spoke during the evening. A huge thank you to Derek and Katrina Murphy for making the haggis, Dan Forbes for the amazing dessert; it was all scrumptious. Thank you to Judy for peeling the vegetables and doing the dishes.

Thank you to Brad Davidson and Brooklyn Hewton for entertaining everyone with the bagpipes and violin; perfect accompaniment for a perfect evening.
