October 2019 Business Meeting Notes

Posted on October 18, 2019 By

Special Note from our Seneschal-

The events of the past week have left many of us sad, upset, or many other types of feelings.
The sudden abdication of a king so quickly after his coronation is overwhelming and confusing.
It is times like this when coming together as a barony and a kingdom can give us strength and reassure us that the East will endure.
We will rally around our Queen and offer her our love and support to help her thru this difficult time. We will support each other, and our Barony will be stronger for it.

Waugh Bhakail!

Thank you.
