Soroptimists Celebrate Burns’ Night

Crosby’s Soroptimists held a traditional – virtual – Burns’ Supper. The highlight of the night was an unexpected ‘guest’ appearance.

President Chris Chua-Short set the scene with videos of Scottish music and song – and the haggis was duly piped in. After the Selkirk Grace, Elspeth Cooper addressed the haggis. The customary toast was Maggie Tatam’s cue to plunge in her knife. Then it was supper-time for all.

Elspeth’s quiz caused much muttering and puzzlement. This gave way to astonishment as surprise ‘guest’ Nicola suddenly appeared in Elspeth’s place. Everyone did a double-take – the mask was so good.

Ably hosted by Pam McKee, the evening enabled a dozen Soroptimists and some of their partners to get together over good food, conversation – and maybe a wee dram (or two).
