JP Fell North Vancouver Burns Night

Jan 15, 2004

By Catherine Barr


It's a night for toasting and roasting and pipin' o the haggis. North Vancouver's JP Fell Armouries held their annual Robert Burns Dinner this past weekend. The evening always starts with the pipe band making their grand entrance (my favourite part) and continues with speeches, songs and celebrations in honour of the Scottish poet himself who was born on January 25th. Attending this year as the guest of honour was B.C.'s Lieutenant Governor, Iona Campagnolo.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
