The Shire had a *great* day at Keep Calm and Ceilidh On this past Saturday. Several members of our shire were recognized by the Crown of the Middle Kingdom for their efforts in getting our group going.
Congratulations to Aeschiene Ashgrove, Choi Minha, Kieth of Grenemere & Laurentius le Rouse for their Award of Arms. Yehoshua ben Abram was awarded the Purple Fret for his service, and our very own Olwen of Buckland was made a Baroness of the Court for her many years of service to the Society!
Indeed, This was a glorious day!
In addition, we raised another $140.00 from our Yard Sale, bringing our total funds to $380.00!! These funds will turned over to our Sponsoring Group Exchequer and will be held until we become a full status group.
We have a *very* busy April coming up:
April 3rd will be our final indoor fighter practice at the Van Wert YMCA from 6pm to 9pm. Starting on April 17th and through September, we’ll be holding practice at Celina Lakeshore Park, near shelterhouse 1 on Ash Street. Both Heavy and Rapier will be meeting, and we continue to thank Lord Ivarr and Lady Prudence for their continued assistance as Marshals in charge. Watch the Facebook Group for any updates!
