Memphis Scottish Society Annual Ceilidh
We are having a BBQ dinner and are asking you to provide the sides and the desserts. We have invited Larkin Bryant to be our guest musician to provide us with dinner music. All of this for the small donation of $5 a head. This is to try and recoup the cost of the evening and keep the costs as reasonable as possible. If you just can’t swing the monies and still would like to come, just come on and we won’t say a thing.
Now pay close attention — this is the most important part of the evening. After the meal is done, it will be time to strut your stuff out on the floor and give us your best rendition of what ever you care to share with us. You can sing us a song, dance a jig, twirl a baton, blow a bagpipe, clog a bit for us, tell a story, etc. etc. etc. This is the part where we would like to try and establish some semblance of order. If you are willing to give us a bit, please let Sammy know so we can keep the evening moving and the entertainment varied. Sammy also gives fair warning that August 1 is the first date he is going to try to start singing again. Hopefully, it will be mutually enjoyable.
Sammy needs anyone who can help in the set up and clean up afterwards. How ‘bout bringing some flowers for the tables, from yours (or your neighbor’s) yards? Who amongst you is willing to come a little early and stay a little late to make sure we take care of the facilities. Sammy plans to arrive at 5:00 to get the tables and chairs set up and ready to go.
Look forward to seeing you there!
Please see the Grace Notes newsletter for full details on what to bring, etc.
