In Club Secretary Willie Shanks’ report of the 1974 Supper, he remarked that Club Member Nelson Baillie, who proposed “the Immortal Memory of Robert Burns,” had a family connection to the Club’s Founder Members. Nelson was the son-in-law of past President Bertie Tennant who, in turn, was son-in-law of the late John Fairbairn, Secretary for over 50 years since the Club’s formation.
