The Burns 250 evening took place on Nov 15th 2008 in the Lodge. There was a good turn-out of approximately 60 members and guests, who enjoyed a great evening of Robert Burns songs, poems and life story illustrated by Powerpoint. Over £600 was raised for DebRA the chosen charity. A big thanks to all who helped out on the night from cooking stovies, setting up the hall, working the bar and donating prizes; especially to Kev Thompson who provided the entertainment; also with thanks to Fisher & Donaldson -high class bakers - for the oatcakes

The Burns 250 show was supported by our brethren and friends from Lodge 236 Wilsontown Ironworks, Forth, Lanarkshire. These men are also accomplished Burns performers who have provided the entertainment at our Lodge Burns Supper for the last three years, and who were much to the fore at the immensely enjoyable Mansewood Cronies supper. They were no doubt glad of a rest - for a change - and an opportunity to see another means of promoting our National Bard! As always, we are grateful for the generosity in time and finance of such men who will always be very welcome in Cupar. We trust it will not be too long before we sit down with them again. A special thanks to Raymond from GMT minibus hire ...and his generous donation to DebRA.
