The only part of a Burns Supper we've missed out is the "Toast to the Lassies" and we are indebted to Carson C. Smith, FSA Scot for sending us in the one he gave at a recent Burns Supper at the Scottish American Club of Indiana.

Stirling CA SNP Burns Supper 2001

Burns Suppers come in all shapes and sizes! SI personnel were involved in two recent vastly differing Suppers with the common thread that they were both chaired by Peter Wright and The Immortal Memory given by James Halliday. One, the Stirling CA SNP Burns Supper had a ‘real’ audience and the second only the four people taking part and a microphone. This was the first ever SI website Burns Supper recorded by the SI webmaster. Use RealAudio to download your own instant Burns Supper.

SI photographer Marilyn Wright was on hand to record the Stirling CA Burns Supper for ‘Flag in the Wind’.
