WELCOME TO THE CALGARY BURNS CLUB WEBSITE
A Club dedicated to the memory of the Scottish poet Robert Burns (1759 - 1796)
The genesis of the Calgary Burns Club, was a Burns Supper in 1964 held in the home of John and Lilian Patterson. This initiated a series of Burns Suppers hosted in turn by other Calgary Scots. In 1976, a group of members gave the club its charter, named Grant MacEwan as the club's patron, and became accredited by the Burns Federation. The club has been running annual Burns Suppers ever since. The Calgary Burns Club holds the memory of Robert Burns and the fellowship arising out of that memory to be one of the most important aspects of being Scottish Calgarians. The Calgary Burns Club fosters an interest in Scottish literature, art and music by sharing its talents with the community and through monetary donations to events displaying Scottish cultural activities.
