Dear Antigonish Highland Society Member / Supporter:

Last year the Antigonish Highland Society Pipe Band hosted a Highland Dinner on the first Sunday evening of Highland Games week.  All who attended agreed that it was a very enjoyable evening and a great way to kick of the events of Games week.

This year the Pipe Band will, once again be sponsoring a Highland Dinner at the Greenway Claymore Inn in Antigonish.

This elegant roast beef buffet will be preceded by the procession of the haggis and the traditional reading of the "Ode to the Haggis."  The AHS Pipe Band  pipers and drummers will entertain prior to the dinner.  Cocktail hour with a cash bar will open at 6:00 p.m. with dinner at 7:00 p.m.

The cost of an individual ticket is $25.

Highland Games Week is traditionally a time for Antigonishers and visitors either to celebrate their own Scottish heritage or to join neighbours in reliving the music and customs of their forebears.  A Highland Dinner is an opportunity for us to renew acquaintances and begin the celebrations associated with Highland Games Week.  As an added bonus, a significant portion of every dinner ticket sold will go directly to the AHS Pipe Band to help further its activities of playing and promoting Scottish piping and drumming in this community and beyond.

As a member / supporter of the Antigonish Highland Society, you have a particular interest in nourishing the Scottish heritage of our community.  Many of us have family and friends who return to this area during Games Week and are always happy to have a good meal with a Scottish savour and to support a good cause.  May we suggest that you make this year's A Highland Dinner part of your family's Games Week plans and that you pass the suggestion on to others.  For groups, it is possible to reserve a table for 6 at a reduced price of $125.

We would be happy to take your order for tickets if you order by phoning the Antigonish Highland Society Office (902) 863-4275, or emailing  briley@stfx.ca.  Your order will be confirmed and payment for the tickets will be made on delivery.  Prepaid tickets may be picked up at the door the evening of the dinner.

Thank you for  your kind attention.
