JP Fell Pipe Band - 12th Annual Burns Supper in North Vancouver

Jan 21, 2006

By Catherine Barr


His words are immortal and you can't go to a New Year's Eve party without singing his "Auld Lang Syne". Eighteenth century Scottish Poet Robert Burns's birthday is celebrated worldwide on January 25th. One of the biggest to-dos on the North Shore takes place every year at the JP Fell Armoury. Celebrating the 12th Annual Burns Supper last Saturday, the JP Fell Pipe Band got the evening off to a rousting start. Then, it was time for speeches and a ceremonial address which culminated in the feast of the beast - Haggis served with all the trimmings.
