The Sunshine coast Branch of the Society of The St Andrew of Scotland, hosted Scots in the Afternoon at the LattE Da Cafe, Landsborough on Saturday September 1. The Guests were treated to a great afternoons entertainment by Bruce Mitchell, Accordionist, Brian Bisset, Vocalist, the Sunshine Coast Caledonian Pipes & Drums, a Drumming Duo by two of the Band Members and some fine Community Singing.
The Highlight of the afternoon was the Sunshine Coast Branch presentation of the David Pearson Memorial Bursary to a Member of the Sunshine Coast Caledonian Pipes & Drums. This Bursary is awarded each year to a member of the Band to be used for extra tuition. The recipient is nominated by the Band so it came as a pleasant surprise to myself and the Committee, when we were told who had been nominated. As President of the Branch, it gave me great pleasure in presenting the Bursary to Piper, Peter Keddie, who is also our Branch Secretary. Peter is a highly respected Member of the Society, the Sunshine Coast Branch, the Pipe Band and a most deserving recipient of the Bursary.
