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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
Janis MacLellan - Peters
