Burns Night Supper 2008
Temple Lodge #65 held their first ever Burns Night Supper on Saturday February 2nd. It was a superb evening, enjoyed by 76 Lodge members, family members and guests. The evening started with a cocktail hour during which lodge members, family and guests got to know each other.
Bruce Taylor, a Scottish Piper played the pipes as people mingled. The Haggis was piped in by Bruce, carried on a silver platter by Ninorah Brookshire and Deborah Burns fondly referred to as Rabbie Burns' great, great, great grand daughter.

A superb meal was enjoyed by all and $275 was raised for the Connecticut Masonic CHIPS program by auctioning a signed bottle of authentic Robbie Burns Scotch Whisky. The winner of the auction was W.Bro. Lemual Johnson of Temple Lodge #65.
The evening ended with the traditional singing of Auld Lang Syne.
