     It ne'er was wealth, it ne'er was wealth,
     That coft contentment, peace, or pleasure;
     The bands and bliss o'mutual love,
     O that's the chiefest warld's treasure.

(Braw Lads o' Gala Water)


THE national bard was remembered in style at the Annual Supper of the Galashiels Burns Club
in the Volunteer Hall on Friday evening 26th January.

Members turned out in force to listen to Ian Fallas proposing the Immortal Memory of Robert Burns,
which was followed by Roy Mack giving the Toast to the Lassies.

Earlier in the day, Club President, Alastair Christie, placed a wreath at the Burns Statue in Lawyer's Brae to mark the poet's birthday after the town clock had played Braw Braw Lads at 2-00 pm with former president, David Sanderson, providing the bagpipe entertainment.
