The Clan MacLeod Society of Greater Vancouver is presenting its 23rd annual Robbie Burns luncheon on Jan. 20 to celebrate Scotland's favourite son.

Featuring traditional Burns stories and toasts, haggis, "neeps and tatties" (turnips and potatoes), a buffet brunch, piping, dancing and music, the event promises a great celebration of Scottish heritage.

Robert Burns was an 18th century poet, best known for the poem and song "Auld Lang Syne." Burns suppers are held around the world on or near the date of the poet’s Jan. 25 birthday.

The Sunday event is from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Richmond Curling Club, 5540 Hollybridge Way. Tickets are $35 for adults, $20 for seniors and children ages six to 12, and free for those under age six. Reserve tickets by Jan. 10 by e-mailing clanmacleodgv@gmail.com or by calling Edie at 604-937-0958.
