Despite blizzard conditions, it was a full-house at St. John’s Anglican Church in Port Elgin for the annual Robbie Burns dinner celebrating the Bard of Scotland‘s birthday, January 25th. (1759).

With Highland dancers, tartans and the traditional haggis, it was an evening filled with all things Scottish.
