Are you ready to celebrate all things Scottish?
On Saturday, January 27, 2018, we are inviting singers in Purcell, Britten, Holst and Ragazzi, along with their families, to attend and participate in an MYC-style Burns Supper celebrating the life and poetry of Robert Burns, Scotland's "national poet." There will be traditional food (prepared by you!), Scottish dancing, singing and a lot of merriment (and plaid) on a (probably) very cold winter's evening.
Because we believe learning about Scotland and attending a Burns Supper is a worthwhile and fun endeavor, everyone in Purcell, Britten, Holst and Ragazzi is invited whether you are traveling to Scotland next summer or not. From the dancing to the traditional Scottish fare to the reading of poetry, the evening is a rich celebration of Scottish culture and a fantastic opportunity for the MYC community to be together.
Please save Saturday, January 27, 2018, from 5-7pm on your calendars for this event!
Q: How does an event like this come together?
A: It's only possible with your involvement!
As a staff, we couldn't be more excited about bringing this event to life but we need a dedicated team of 5-6 parent-leaders to make it happen. If you have attention to detail, creativity, flexibility and enthusiasm for cultural enrichment, please consider volunteering to join this leadership team!
Because we have done this event twice before (2014 and 2016), we have many details already settled and a lot of notes for how to accomplish a pot-luck style dinner of this size. The leadership team will have access to MYC parents who were strategic in executing the past dinners and who are happy to answer questions and offer guidance. In short, you will have many resources available to you and you'll have the added bonus of becoming experts on how to throw a Burns Supper party!
We would like to have an initial meeting with the leadership team in November or early December so if you're interested in volunteering, please email Lynn so we can begin planning.
