Winding Down & Farewell

 

We hope you enjoyed our virtual Burns Night of Scottish Country Dances.   As the evening nears its end, please sit by the fire below, take a last turn about the room, and choose your version of an "Auld Lang Syne" dance below.

Farewell

 

It was a brilliant evening, but it's time to say farewell.  We hope you will join us again next year.  
 
 

Adieu! a heart-warm fond adieu; 
Dear brothers of the mystic tie! 
Ye favoured, enlighten'd few, 
Companions of my social joy; 

 

Tho' I to foreign lands must hie, 
Pursuing Fortune's slidd'ry ba'; 
With melting heart, and brimful eye, 
I'll mind you still, tho' far awa.
