Proposer of the Toast  “The Immortal Memory of Robert Burns”   1912

Proposer of the Toast  “Let it Blaw – the Balerno Burns Club”  1912

In the record of a committee meeting held on 17th November 1911, George Y. Robertson reported that he had “secured Councillor Lorne MacLeod, 25 Albany Street, Edinburgh to propose the Toast of the Evening at the forthcoming Anniversary Supper.”

So, Councillor MacLeod attended the 1912 Supper as a Guest Speaker. It’s not thought that he ever became a member of ‘Let it Blaw’.
