Please can you help me I am replying on behalf of the Lassies at a "Rotary Club" Burns Night,  I also gave the reply at last years Burns Night so I need something quite different. I would really appreciate it if you could keep it short and punchy!!!

Lots of places.

Wikipedia lays out the traditional order of things on the night, including some of the traditional "must-recite" poems.

It will look bad if you use someone else's speeches verbatim.  So just look at these as templates; you can lift some of the material, but try not to get it all from the same source.

From, a long but well-referenced Reply to the Toast to the Lassies.

A Reply from the Lassies came from the Royal Thames Yacht Club Burns night, in 2002 that is Bawdry and impassioned!

A sober, gently loving reply more about Burns than to the Laddies, from the USA.
