The Annual No XII Charity Burns Supper will be held in the Town Hall on Saturday 24th February 2018.
The Immortal Memory will be delivered by a good friend of No XII – Bro David Vennard PM
(left) of The Glasgow Kilwinning Lodge No 4. Bro David is an accomplished speaker and also delivers a mean poetic address. We have heard him before at the No XII Burns supper when he delivered Tam o’ Shanter in 2015. Bro David’s Immortal Memory will be interesting and informative.

The Toast to the Lassies will be by Bro Kenny Wilson of Lodge Ardgowan No 1425. Kenny is, of course, very well known locally be it for his work on the folk and entertainment scene with The Wherries, his involvement in the Scout Association as a former District Commissioner or his expertise on the Bass Drum many years ago in the Greenock and District Scout Pipe Band. I have spoken alongside Bro Kenny on many occasions and one thing that we all can be guaranteed of is a laugh!

By coincidence, we have another former Bass Drummer delivering Tam o’ Shanter and that is Bro David Docherty. David has affiliated to Lodge Firth of Clyde Gourock No 626 but his Mother Lodge is Lodge Rothesay St John No 292. Bro Davie comes from Rothesay and played the big drum in the Rothesay and District Pipe Band. I have also spoken with Bro Davie on several occasions and his Tam o’ Shanter is unique and incomparable.

A great night is in store and bookings will be taken very soon by either Bro Alan D Beck PM or myself (Bro Iain White PM).
