                                               JUNE DANCE 2017


         According to reports in the popular newspapers, the month of June was the wettest and coldest month ever recorded. Fortunately, the evening of Friday 30th was balmy and encouraged a group of 63 members and guests to the Osprey room of the Commodore Hotel, where they were royally entertained by the Liam Stewart Dance Band Trio. The band consisted of Bobby Stewart on second accordion, Malcolm Ross on drums and of course Liam Stewart on lead accordion. Liam and Bobby hail from Galston in Ayrshire while Malcolm had a good two hour journey from Arbroath (what you might call, dedication)  They are a wonderful band and no wonder.----- Liam was the Scottish Accordion Champion of 2002 and 2013; and it showed.!!!  He recently played at Buckingham Palace for HRH, the  Prince of Wales and 300 distinguished guests.


        The evening was introduced by President John Johnston and the evening assumed its normal format of, dancing  till 9.30pm, tea / coffee /  biscuits, followed by the drawing of the raffle, till 10.00pm. The raffle raised the grand sum of £184, which will go toward our end of year calculation of profit  for the 2018 ’Good Cause’ donatons.

            Dancing then continued till about 11.45pm and the evening was closed by the President who thanked all who had contributed to the success of the evening.

It should be stressed that the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all, due in no small measure, to the professionalism of the Dance Band. 


             The next dance will be held on Friday 28th July at 8.00 pm. 


Please note.................Membership subscriptions are now due and should be paid within the next two months. The present fee of £5.00 will continue for the next year. 

(For current non-members who attend functions only occasionally, taking an annual membership represents a very good saving on the ticket prices!)
