Scots say thankyou


To the Editor:

The Scottish Society of Martha’s Vineyard would like to thank all those who helped to make our annual Robert Burns Dinner such a success. We’d especially like to thank those who contributed to our scholarship fund auction and raffle.

To Dick Brown, Cape Air, Steve and Claudia Ewing, Donna Blackburn, collection of Don MacRae, Bob Conway, Madeline Fisher, Sofia Anthony, Phil Dietterich, Betsy and Bill Llewelyn, Liz Villard, the Rev. Robert Hensley, Brenda and Robert Wallace, Alan Reekie, Al’s, Your Market, Allan Keith, Bud France, Jim and Pam Butterick, Ian Aitchison, Ed Pierce, Bill and Judy McConnell, Ed Perry, Deb Medders, Phyllis Meras, Susan Wilson, Cindy Bonnell, Chris Scott and Duncan MacDonald, our thanks.

Thanks too to the Harbor View and staff for the great service and delicious meal, especially chef Levon Wallace for the exquisite Allen Farm haggis.

We also thank Jack Wildauer for his sound/light system and the irrepressible Clarence “Trip” Barnes, auctioneer, for separating us Scots from more of our money this year than last, an almost impossible feat. See you all next year.
