Although it was a damp night for this years Aberdeen part of the NE Wallace weekend it didn't affect the spirit of the small group who gathered to commemorate Wallace at the Wallace statue. Prayers were said in Latin during the ceremony as a way of linking with the past as these were words Wallace would have known and spoken many times. Author and historian David R Ross spoke with real passion about Wallace and the impact he had on people through the ages.He also reminded all there of the events to mark the 700th anniversary and how when Scots worked together things could be achieved. The huge Wallace statue flanked by 2 clansmen holding burning torches certainly had never looked better and despite the weather all there left feeling that once again Wallace had been remembered and Scotland indeed owed his memory a great debt. The evening moved into one of the oldest areas of Aberdeen to the Green.Ted Christopher and Shiltrum put on a great evenings entertainment in The Old Kings Highway and once again it was good to catch up with members and friends of Crann Tara.
