Stories at the Great Northeastern War

Stories. I realized this weekend that our events are created around stories. A great great grand laurel tells a tale of failure and regret and salvation. A bard sings a parable of friendship, family and breaking bread. A woman shares a secret of long lost love not quite yet found while another faces fears of violence and mistrust. Old friends reconnect over shared memories and new ones are formed over found connections. Stories crafted through laughter and song, food and drink, sword and scroll. Perhaps some are embellished. Some are truer than we’d like to admit. Stories stand the test of time. Stories bridge the differences and break down the walls. Stories bring us together time and time again. Would we keep coming back if there were no stories to share, tales to tell, or puns to ponder? I hope we never have to find out.
 
Thank you to all who joined us for a story or two at the Great Northeastern War. I look forward to our next tale.

Province Meeting in Gorham July 5th

Please note, July’s Province Meeting, Thursday, July 5th, will be held at our house in Gorham – 22 Green St. We’ll have a potluck dinner and the grill set up. We’ll have some burgers and dogs, so bring anything else you want to grill, sides or beverages. Dinner at 6, meeting starting at 7. We do need to vote on A&S Minister, so we do need a quorum of officers. Please let me know if you are an officer and not able to join us. See you next week!

YIS,

Wynefryd

 

Something fishy this way comes….

Something is rotten in the Shire of Hadchester. It may be only a red herring, but I smell something fishy. I don’t want to open a can of worms, but I will take the bait cast and meet their armies on the field of battle to balance the scales. Join us at The Great Northeastern War in The Province of Malagentia on July 12 through the 15th, AS LIII for a fight that will be off the hook!

A&S Minister Nominations needed

Please remember: I am accepting nominations for A&S Minister up to our June Province meeting on Thursday, June 7th. The duties of the A&S Minister are “Support the Arts and Sciences according to the wishes of the local group’s populace and Officers and submit quarterly reports.” ( http://moas.eastkingdom.org/cms/wp-content/uploads/EK-MoAS-handbook.pdf ) Please note – We MUST have an A&S Minister in order to retain our status as a Province. There are lots of folks who will help you succeed if you feel unsure as to whether you’re “ready” to step up as an officer. This is a great opportunity for someone!

In order to run for a Malagentian Office, you must reside in Malagentia (this includes the Ridings of Giggleswick and Ravensbridge), and be a paid member of the SCA (if this is a hardship, please let me know). Nominations or questions should be sent to seneschal at malagentia.eastkingdom.org
