19 February 2016 – Dinner in the Quay Musselburgh
RCC President Billy Howet has confirmed he will be attending the dinner, John O’Neil is our guest speaker and George Machray will entertain us with a few songs. For those of you who attended our AGM this year you will remember George entertained us after the dinner. Drew Johnston has kindly agreed to be Master of Ceremonies.
Finally, the night will be rounded up by a Scottish folk music set by the wonderful Detla who are a well known Musselburgh based band.
MCC members will receive 2 free tickets for the dinner and additional tickets can be purchased at a cost of £30 per person. We have tried to keep the ticket price reasonable and hope that you will bring along a couple of friends to the dinner, I am sure you will all agree that this will be a great night.
Start time for the dinner is 7pm and we expect things to wind down around 11pm although the bar will be open until 1am if you do want to stay on for a few more drinks.
Please contact Audrey with any questions or additional ticket orders.
