Robbie Burns of Scotland died in 1796. He was also known as Rabbie Burns, the Bard of Ayrshire, Ploughman Poet and various other names and was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide.
For the past 50 years the Fort St. John Masons and the Knights of Columbus have been a part of this celebration and as such, host an annual Robbie Burns Dinner. This came to be as a result of much-needed restitution for the two clubs and a desire to work together to serve the community. It was decided that the Robbie Burns dinner would be ideal.
Today, as in the past, people from the area come to the evening’s celebration to eat, drink, listen to some of the Bard’s poetry, watch the highland dancers, enjoy the sounds of the Rotary Pipe Band and of course dance. This year will be no exception.
