Hello all so sorry for the delay, I was a wee bit under the weather yesterday and had hoped to post the details up on our 3RD ANNIVERSARY OF RT BURNS. Yes FEB. 11 is our 3rd Anniversary of the formation of RT BURNS. This is all down to a very special lady Rosemarie Rounce who I am most honored to call friend, it is her dream and it has now become a reality. RT BURNS would not be here if it was not for Rosemaries dream and vision and we came together when the word of a possible BURNS FILM with Gerry Butler was out there. I was most honored to have Rose by my side when we met ANDREW BOSWELL OF MOB FILMS in LONDON to discuss the BURNS FILM they are in the process of putting together and I know ANDREW did not know what hit him and he knew Rosemarie and I meant business. Well here we go and we know you will have some great CREST ideas out there. In honor of RT Burns becoming members OF THE ROBERT BURNS FEDERATION we have a very special Competition.

A suggestion for our crest:

A silhoette of two people shaking hands under the Burns Federation badge and the words "Gies a haun".

GIES A HAUN rolls off the tongue and can mean so many things Rose.

Take my hand, shake my hand, give me help, give us help, applaud me or us, etc. It is always friendly.

The Burns Monument, Albany, designed by George H. Broughton and sculpted by Charles Calverley, dedicated in Washington Park, September 30, 1888 depicts "Auld Lang Syne": two men having a drink together and shaking hands across a table.
