For those of you that have never experienced a Burns Supper before I have attached an information sheet with a little background information on what this is all about. (Please click on the words Burns Supper above).
Saturday, January 22, 2011 at 6:00 p.m. is our Fifth Annual Robert Burns Supper being held at Portland State University. Dinner will be held again in the PSU Ballroom in the Smith Memorial Student Union Building. The last four years have been spectacular! We would like to thank everyone who has attended in the past and welcome you to attend the dinner again this year!
We are also fortunate to be inviting back the Rose in the Heather band for more of their incredible Celtic music.
Here is what you have to look forward to this year:
Hosted reception with appetizers.
Rose in the Heather band of course.
Bag Piper to open the evening and pipe in the haggis.
Ode to the Haggis by John MacLean.
Mike Burton our Master of Ceremonies.
The Immortal Memory.
The Toast to the Lassies.
Traditional haggis, neeps and tatties.
A surprise dessert with coffee or tea.
No host bar for the evening.
A whisky tasting with the whisky sponsor to be named later.
Plus, door and raffle prizes and much more.
Come join in the fun! It is going to be a spectacular evening!
