On Friday, January 8, our 2016 Burns celebrations got off to an early start with a special "Oor Club" lunch at the Duke of York pub in Toronto.
Our piper was St. Andrew's Society President, Rory Sinclair and David Campbell gave his famous "Address to the Haggis" and entertained us with some of Burns's best-loved songs. Oor Club co-ordinator, Pearl Grieve-Nixon, gave the "Selkirk Grace."
Scottish Studies Foundation President, David Hunter, delivered the "Immortal Memory" which you can listen to here:
Note: Opening music, "My Heart's in the Highlands" by J. H. Frank; closing music, "Ae Fond Kiss" by the West Ocean String Quartet.
