Robert Burns (25 January 1759 – 21 July 1796) a.k.a. Rabbie Burns and the Bard of Ayrshire and the Ploughman Poet (dude had all the nicknames) is considered the National Poet of Scotland. He’s also widely regarded as the founder of the Romantic Movement in literature. Well done, Rabbie. Well done.

The dinner will be Saturday, January 21st, 2017. Tickets are $28 each – advanced ticket sales only. Email GRSS1991@yahoo.com for information on how to get tickets.

… So when she was among two former All-American college throwers during the seventh annual Gaylord Highland Games held Saturday at Gaylord Regional Airport, she utilized the opportunity to learn about what it takes to be successful as a thrower at the next level.
“It was pretty cool,” Kroll said. “You can tell when they do certain events that that’s what they’ve done before, and they’re good at it.
“I kept asking about what you threw in college and high school and what you think about this and what you think about that.”
Kroll placed second in the women’s division of the Highland Games.
A fun time was had as Kate and Shauna enjoyed a bit of haggis at Grand Rapids Scottish Society “Robert Burns Supper”. Jan 23, 2016
The Dinner Night at Graydon’s Crossing in October was very interesting and jovial. I feel it met our expectations! It’s always adventurous to go some place new and different. We were very warmly greeted which might have been in part that we were all Kilted! The food was Scottish in Nature and the Chef who was prompted by out Scottish friends in Sparta, presented us with a specially delicious Scottish Bridie appetizer upon arrival! There were libations and toasting, more libations and more toasting with libations continuing thru the night! All in all, a return trip to Graydon’s Crossing is a mighty fine idea! They Rock!
