This year our Breilidh (formerly known as Ceilidh) will be on Sat. July 23 at St. Luke Lutheran church on Germantown Road. We will eat breakfast (for supper) at 6 pm and the entertainment will begin at 7 pm promptly. MSSI will provide bacon, eggs(Scrambled and Scotch), water, tea, and coffee.You can help by bringing a breakfast casserole, pastries, orange, apple or cranberry juice, fruit or fruit salad, green salad or other veggies, and baked beans - yes baked beans! There will be a sign up sheet at the July 11th meeting. The Scottish Country dancers will be doing a demonstration dance and an audience participation dance, so please bring your dancing shoes.


This is critical to a well rounded evening and I just need a bit of cooperation from those of you that wish to entertain. First: let me, Sammy Rich, know that you wish to perform and an idea of what you want to do. That will help me as MC to keep the evening flowing at a lively clip so no one has a chance to dose off in between acts. Second repeat the first one! Look forward to seeing and hearing all!


One of the favorite parts of our Scottish Breakfast in years past are our members displays of items and collections that they would like to share. We will provide tables for these items and time for each person to introduce their hobby, craft or collection. BUT the two rules for the entertainers apply to you as well. Smile!
