Dear ASF Members and Friends,
Greetings to all as we celebrate today Scotland's national bard, Robert Burns.

The ASF held our 24th Annual Burns Supper in association with the University Club last Friday and to all who attended - THANK YOU for making it such a great celebration of the Bard.
Today VisitScotland shared an International video message around Robert Burns famous verse, "My Love is Like A Red Red Rose", and notes that Burns does not just speak to Scotland but speaks to the World.
