THE Dumbarton Football Stadium hosted a very successful Sonstrust Burns Supper on Friday evening, and thanks are extended to all who were there.
With Sons vice-chairman Colin Hosie as master of ceremonies for the evening, the even provided a great opportunity for party-goers to mix at the stadium once again.
Much-loved local minister Rev Ian Miller gave the Immortal Memory speech, while schoolteacher Graham Hill, also from the local area, gave the toast to the lassies.
Replying on behalf of the lassies was actress Yvonne Waring. All three speakers were very well-received by the audience.
Sons supporters Colin Lawrie and Robert Ryan provided musical entertainment, on the bagpipes and harmonica/guitar/vocals respectively.
And Jack Brough performed fine recitals of two of Robert Burns’ best-known poems, Tam o Shanter and Holy Willie’s Prayer. Again, the efforts of all three performers went down a storm.
The meal on the night was supplied by Alex Graham Catering, and grateful thanks are extended to them for their work.
We are also extremely grateful to all those who attended the event and contributed to a hugely successful evening. Many thanks to you all!
