BURNS NIGHT SUPPER 2003 - 18 January

Thanks to all but particularly Alex & Andrew for their great efforts.

Jim O'Rourke was an exceptional guest, very well received by the members. He sent a letter of thanks to our Chairman, which included the following: "I wish to express my thanks to all at London Hibs for the kindness shown to myself, my partner Anne, my brother John and sister-in-law Judi on our visit to London at the weekend for the Burns’ Supper."

Jimmy O'Rourke's Appreciation Dinner was on 30 March. A good time was had by one and all and Jimmy was once again overwhelmed by our support. Signed Ian Murray and Wayne Rooney strips were won by members!

"Where's Jimmy Wallace?" I hear you ask! Well, on Saturday 3rd May he was at Easter Road, enjoying a fine performance by youngsters Derek Riordan and Scott Brown in the 3-1 victory over Aberdeen. (L-R, Mike Inglis, Bill Garriock, Jimmy Walllace, John Connor)

Mike Inglis & Rose McEwan

You never know who you're going to meet on holiday! There I was, meeting relatives at Orlando's Sanford Airport, when I spotted Rose McEwan waiting for her coach.
