November 28th is the date for the Son’s Of Scotland, Camp Kildonnan’s annual
St Andrew’s Night celebration, a traditional Ceilieh with food and dancing. This is our pinnacle
(and only) fundraising event with money raised set aside for artistic bursaries promoting Scottish
Arts (Highland Dancing, playing Bagpipes, and drumming) for eligible young people.
Exciting donated items are available to bid in the Silent Auctions, all in aide of
raising bursary funds. A new part to the evening can see those attending contributing to Camp
Kildonnan’s “tinned food drive” for the local food bank, as boxes will be available to fill with
various tinned, canned and boxed food stuffs. As well, a “surprise” bag auction and various
other fun games are planned. The evening starts off with a delicious turkey dinner and all the
trimmings, followed by live entertainment by the band “Kilt 45”.
Also, on a community minded note, Kildonnan Camp will be contributing to the Upper Room
Mission’s Back Pack Initiative. Member of the camp are collecting the necessary items, and
filling backpacks to be donated to the Back Pack program closer to Christmas. Kildonnan Camp
and the Sons of Scotland are very commited to their mandate as a benevolent association, that
“pays it forward” by doing good for the local youth and the community.
