2015 – St. Andrews’ Night
On the evening of Saturday 28 November, 2015, the members and their guests gathered at the Tontine Hotel, Greenock for the Annual St. Andrews Night Celebration.
Club President Christine MacLeod welcomed everyone. Thereafter, we all had a very nice meal.
After the meal Christine introduced our speaker Mrs Isabella Lind OBE, Past President, who proposed the toast to St. Andrew and Scotland. The toast was delivered in an expert manner and was informative, entertaining and very humorous – in true “Isabel Style”.
The toast was very well received and deserved the subsequent standing ovation.
After an interval, Christine MacLeod introduced The Wherries, who entertained everyone with their extensive repertoire of Scottish songs, which also involved audience participation, much to everyone’s the amusement.
At the end of the entertainment, Jim Donnelly, Senior Vice-President, proposed the Vote of Thanks.
The Executive Committee would like to thank the Tontine Hotel for the use of the facilities, the members of the Mother Club for their generous donations to the raffle, to June Forbes and Barclay Smith for their organisation of the raffle but more especially to all who attended and made the evening a success.
