Robert Burns Supper drew a small but passionate crowd Saturday night

(Lander, WY) – The Wind River Scottish Society hosted the 2022 Robert Burns Supper at the Lander Senior Center Saturday night, and according to event organizer Margaret ‘Maggie’ Appleby as well as many attendees, this was one of the smaller turnouts the event has had in years.
