Inveraray Burns Club
The Burns club had another very successful year with sell out events held in the Argyll Hotel including the Burns Supper in January. These events were run under the stewardship of our President of four years Jim McMillan.
Work will start shortly on tidying up the five War Graves at Kilmalieu Cemetery which the branch have undertaken to maintain. Two war graves were known at Kilmalieu Cemetery and on contacting the Commonwealth War Graves Commission they notified the Legion of three more in the Cemetery.
A sponsored walk in aid of branch funds was held on Sunday 2nd May, covering 7 miles starting at the Argyll Hotel going to Maam Farm in Glen Shira and back.
Jim has now stood down as President and Michael Kidd has taken up the reins. We wish Michael well in his presidency. The remaining positions on Committee stand as was, with Kenny & Silvia Stark doing their excellent work, as usual. We hope that the incoming year proves as fruitful as the last. The Club is open to new members.
