In the News..

On Thursday, April 7th, 2022, Clan Logan represented by myself and Vice-President
Laurent Audar attended the long awaited Burns night supper that was rescheduled
due to the pandemic and hosted by the Montreal saint Andrew's Society.
This year, the event was held at l'espace Canal at L'ambroisie in Montreal. There
were many fresh new faces in the attendance as many people became new members of the
society. We started out with a cocktail reception followed by piping guests to the
tables by Cameron Stevens. Clan Logan was at table 6 and this allowed us to connect
and share with people we haven't seen in a very long time.
There were a few speeches, a recitation ''Address to the Toothache'' by Gillian Leitch,
an impressive and dynamic address to the Haggis by Sara Lackie and various toasts to
the Queen, laddies and lassies. The guest of honour was Michal Yellowlees, who walked
across Canada with his dog Luna for the rewilding charity Trees for life based in
Scotland whose goal is to restore the Caledonian Forest, which once covered most of Scotland.
Michael also charmed the crowd with his guitar and song. Cameron Stevens then piped
Auld Lang Syne to close the event. It all felt like a breath of fresh air to be at an event again. We would like to thank the Montreal Saint Andrew's Society for a fantastic Burns night event.
