Congrats to the Lodge for enhancing the good name of Robert Burns. In this the 250th Anniversary of his birth. It is important, if not essential, that the immortal memory of the National Bard is maintained. I have had the privilege of visiting 135 on several occasion, mainly at the invitation of Bro. Robert Ross PM and I am impressed by the professionalism and the continued focus on keeping the good name of the Lodge and Robert Burns alive. Fraternally John Sutherland

I wonder if any of your brethren have a lecture that they can let me have that I can orate to our lodge about your connection with the great man himself.
