“Burns Night “Gibralter Round Table and 41 Club – 20th January 2012

 I had the pleasure of attending my second Burns Night of the year in Gibraltar. This Burns Night was a much larger event with over 100 members and guest attending, the event being held just over the border in Spain. It was great to see many old friends in particular Paul Origio Past 41 Club National President of Girbralter,  who was Round Table National President of Gibralter when I was Round Table National President of RTBI.

As well as the traditional haggis, the highlight of the evening must have been the singing and poetry readings/recitals and the  evening raised a considerable amount of money for local charities.

his is very well supported by the UK with Past National Presidents, Peter Manley and John Kilsh attending, various Round Table Board members and EMA Chairman Steve Lord  as well as many others.  Lawrence Bamber also came over for the event.

Gibralter Round Table and 41 Club organised for the wives and partners to be taken out while we were at the event and Jill also  had a great evening with friends she had made there over the years.
