Sunday, January 27, 2013, saw Silver Thistle Pipes and Drums commemorating the immortal memory of Robert Burns. Peter Reid, a native of Scotland and current Texas, gave the toast to Robert Burns intermixed with some spicy humor. We had the traditional toast to the Lassies and the Lads as well. The haggis was piped in and Torf recited Burns’ thorough poem touting the benefits of consuming copious amounts of the Scottish treat! STPD unveiled the Cairncross Ceilidh Band as well as played some of our well-loved, and even some new tunes, on the Great Highland Pipes.
