New Years Eve is the main celebration in the St Andrews Society social calendar and this year it was a spectacle of handsome gents sporting their kilts, ladies in evening dress and a dance band. The meal was based on elegant food stations providing guests with the opportunity to try Mash Potato Martinis with various toppings including Haggis of course Beef Tenderloin with caramelised Onions Chicken soulvaki with tzatziki and Jumbo Shimp with roasted garlic and herbs Pork showed its face disguised in homemade sausage rolls as an appetizer. At midnight the party peeled out onto the main street and a Piper engaged everybody in a rendition of Auld Landsigne.
Those who were lucky enough to attend the Polo Niagara event today will have been in awe of the sheer power of the polo ponies charging down the Common in Niagara on the Lake in pursuit of a ball.
