Editors, Vineyard Gazette:

The Scottish Society of Martha’s Vineyard would like to thank all those who helped to make our annual Robert Burns dinner such a success. We’d especially like to thank those who contributed to our scholarship fund auction and raffle.

Dick Brown (our 97-year-old wood carver), Cape Air, Lee and Peter Scott, Peter Wells, Susie Bowman, Alan and Peg Renfrew, Madeline Fisher, Steve and Claudia Ewing, Ed Pierce, Cindy Bonnell, Bob and Brenda Wallace, Bill and Betsy Llewelyn, Highlander magazine, Duncan MacDonald, Ian Aitchison, Bud France, Alan Reekie, Al’s Package Store, Your Market, Rev. Bob Hensley, Carl and Barbara Lopes, Donna Blackburn, Phyllis Meras and S. Baily Norton.

Thanks to the Harbor View and chef Shaun Sells and staff for a great meal. Jack Wildauer and Tom Mayhew for our Broadway-quality sound and light system. And as always, Trip Barnes, auctioneer extraordinaire. You never know what he’s going to come up with, as he expertly extricates us Scots from our money.

See you all next year.

Steve Ewing, Edgartown
