Sunday 10th February 2013
IT was a night of celebration at the Bet Butler Stadium as over 100 people gathered to honour Scotland’s bard at DFC’s inaugural Burns Supper.
A superb evening of entertainment was enjoyed by the assembled company with top table Chairman John Doran in top form keeping the event flowing.
From the opening address to the haggis, expertly performed by Robert Sloan to the rousing chorus of Auld Lang Syne led by John Young which brought the evening to a close, each performance was expertly delivered.
Bill Kean’s ‘Toast to the Lassies’ was replied to by Jeanette Barnes whilst the aforementioned John Young’s faultless rendition of ‘Tam O’Shanter’ drew a standing ovation.
Robert Philips performance of “The Twa Dugs” were received well as was John Hardie’s Immortal Memory and ‘A Man’s a Man For Aw That.”
Undoudtedly the highlight of the event was the singing of Ainslie Hamill who demonstrated why she won awards at the 2012 National MOD.
Sons Commercial Director Alan Findlay commented : “Congratulations to everyone involved in organising what was a great night of entertainment.
“The performers were brilliant and when John Doran is in the Chair you know that the evening will be a good one. He never fails to deliver in keeping things in good order.
“The food too was fantastic and our caterer Robert Sloan keeps producing excellent fayre.
“Thanks too to everyone who came along and participated making the night a perfect end to a good footballing day!”
