Jim McVey & Zoe Alexander Videos @ Heather & Thistle Meetiung

Heather & Thistle Meeting, Jan 28th Our next Heather and Thistle meeting will be held at 7:30pm on January 28th, 2008 in Theatre of St. Thomas' Episcopal School. The Burns Club presentation to the Society will be quite different this year. Instead of the usual live show, the Club will be showing a selection of video material from shows in the late 1990s in memory of Zoe Alexander and Jim McVey, two of our stalwart members who died within a few days of each other late last year. Jim was our video guru and recorded quite a collection of material from these shows, as well as being our resident "wee pygmy scraper" on his fiddle in them. Zoe was a talented performer. As well as showing video featuring both Zoe and Jim, we'll be talking about how these videos were made and the laughs we had doing them. This is intended to be a fun evening. Please try to come along. (Poster's Note: This year's downtown St Patrick's Day parade will be dedicated to the memory of Jim McVey, as well as to too many others we have lost this year.)
I had lost touch with my good friend Jim McVey and am so saddened by his passing. Does anyone know where he is buried. I'd like to visit and sink a wee dram or two in his honour.
