2019 Conference – Niagara

2019 Annual Conference Robert Burns Association North America (RBANA)

Burns never visited Niagara Falls. However from his poems and letters he showed a good knowledge of North America.
In a letter to John Arnott in 1786 he wrote  “Religion, a feebly-struggling beaver down the roaring of Niagara.”
So come to Niagara Falls, thrill to the “Roaring of Niagara” and share time with fellow Burnsians.
