The Twenty-second ANNUAL BURNS NIGHT SUPPER

You are cordially invited to attend the Shasta Celtic Society’s Twenty-second Annual Burns Night Supper, to be held Saturday, January 19, 2019, at the Red Lion Hotel on Hilltop Drive, Redding.

This wonderful gala event honoring the life and works of Scotland’s most beloved son, Robert Burns, will include all the traditional entertainment and trappings that everyone has come to love and expect. There will be toasts and speeches, poetry readings, singing, piping, the parading of the Haggis, and musical entertainment—all done in high Scots style. The talent includes performers associated with the Shasta Celtic Society and the Jefferson Pipe Band.

This year’s theme is "Burns in love." In his short life he wrote so many poems that showed that he loved his country and the lassies. “But to see her was to love her; Love but her, and love forever. Had we never lov'd say kindly, Had we never lov'd say blindly.” Yes, he loved the lassies.

Please come join the festivities. The doors open at 5 PM for the traditional social Gathering, with cheers and great conversation at "The Robbie" and again will feature special libations and a Scotch Tasting! After the gathering, your seat will be ready for you, and the ceremonies will commence promptly at 6 PM. A no-host bar will be available throughout the evening and will feature special libations at "The Robbie."

Dinner will feature a buffet, with special entrées of Tri Tip with Scotch Cream Sauce and Chicken Marsala. Along with these entrées there will be salad, bread and butter, Fresh Roasted Winter Vegetables and, to complete our feast, the Chef’s Decadent Dessert Display. Coffee and tea will also be served.

To make our evening more exciting, the raffle once again will be coordinated by Diane Elrick, and assisted by her able Raffle Lassies. Each year Diane makes the raffle more spectacular than the previous year. Diane is always looking for unique and exciting prizes to raffle off, so if you have that special item you would like to donate, please contact her at 246-3603. Please notice on the registration form, the prices have remained the same. So, remember the raffle supports the modest price for this special evening.
