Festivus Thank you’s, Shire Name Update, and New Year’s at Olwens!



Good Morning!

We had a successful Festivus yesterday and we sincerely thank Lady Aveline de Ceresbroch from Shadowed Stars and Sir Lothar Nachtshatten from Flaming Gryphon for taking time out of their holiday to visit with us and show their expertise.  Lady Aveline’s pictures of the day can be located here on Facebook.  Our next Festivus has been scheduled for Sunday, February 18th at the same location,  the Mercer County Civic Center.

In other news,  I received an update from the Middle Kingdom College of Heralds.  Our shire name, Grenemere, has passed Kingdom and has been forwarded to Laurel (Society) for final review and approval!!  Per the notification,  the commentary period at Society level is at least three months, followed by another couple of months for final decision and publication of that decision.

Remember, we’re still looking for folks to review potential heraldry and help narrow down our options.  If you haven’t already done so, please make your way to our design album on Facebook, located here, and vote for your favorite design.  As a note, any design showing a fish skeleton will be replaced with a live fish.  We will take the top three most “liked” designs and have a final vote at our January Business Meeting!

Finally,  we have Flaming Gryphon 12th Night coming up on January 6th and We are in charge of the Feast!  HL Olwen of Buckland is our fearless leader and will be hosting the shire at her home in St. Marys on New Years Day from 1pm to 6pm to start the feast preparation!  The Event will be set up on our Calendar and Facebook.  We hope you can join us!

From all of us at Grenemere, we wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Here’s to an exciting new year!

Jerusha a’Laon, Seneschal
