Wednesday evening at the San Diego Scottish Rite Event center, the second Annual Robert Burns dinner was held in the traditional manner with Haggis and fine Scotch….but only a wee dram or two mind you…over 150 people were in attendance for this fund raiser for the Scottish Rite Language Clinic! Along with some wonderful commentary and witty repartee’ the guests enjoyed Highland Dancers and of course Bag Pipes and Snare Drum…In keeping with the evening many facts of this celebrated Scottish poet were presented for edification and the crowd toasted all proper to be done so and left that evening with a greater appreciation of Robbie Burns…and maybe just a little more Scottish at heart! Here as always are a few images…please view the rest at .
