AFTER THE BURNS FESTIVAL
Back to work after a very busy weekend. It's our regular Tuesday opening, and two of our members who are very knowledgeable about hospitals and surgery, are sorting through all our hospital records. The plan is to list everything, evaluate each item and then catalogue them.
We're very grateful to Jennifer Rabach and Helen Booth for offering to help in this way.
The instruments we posted a while back have been identified as Brain Surgery instruments (as suggested by a follower in our comments section).

LoL! Sure it's not the first or the last mishap!

A WEE BIT O' SCOTTISH HUMOUR
The Heritage Centre has many kilts (donated or on loan) which we are displaying in various ways. Just check out this very handsome Spanish Cavalier. He used to stand guard at the bottom of the staircase in Talindert homestead - now he joins in the fun of Camperdown's Burns weekend.
We're open on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th from 10am till 2pm and there's plenty of serious stuff too, about our Scottish heritage and the bard himself.

A SPECIAL TREAT FOR CAMPERDOWN
This year, for the Robert Burns Festival, at a suggestion from the CDHS, the Leura Lodge, Camperdown is opening their beautiful bluestone building to the public.
It's not often the general public get a chance to see inside a Masonic Lodge so we're very excited to pass on this news. The building has many beautiful features inside and out, and it is well worth taking advantage of this rare opportunity.
The hall will be open from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th July.
A handout has been prepared which details the full history of the Camperdown Lodge and the involvement of Robert Burns himself in the Brotherhood of Freemasonry.
