Summer Fun!

Hi All, First off due to the way Sunday’s fall and the fact the second Sunday of the month is the same weekend as GNE, the july business meeting is the 21st at the Camelot Common house great room (69 Village ct, berlin ma).

Look for Camelot Co-Housing on the directions page, https://quintavia.eastkingdom.org/events-practices/directions/

If you haven’t recently done so, take a look around the Shire and see if you notice anyone doing good work that should be written in for awards. Especially search out the quiet ones 🙂

For a quick refresher on writing someone in, take a look at this post from last year. https://quintavia.eastkingdom.org/writing-folks-in-for-awards/

If you are looking for something to do this long weekend, don’t forget the Weaving day this sunday.

Happy New Year

I hope everyone’s Holidays was  relaxing and fun filled as mine was.   I’d like to start by calling attention to the newest recipients of the Keepers.  If you didn’t make it to Yule (or even if you did) please have a look and take a moment to congratulate people for their accomplishments.

Keeper Recipient List

There will be a full Curia on the Sunday of Birka this year, as always if you have commentary please let me know so I can adequately represent the Shire.

https://seneschal.eastkingdom.org/docs/27Jan2019curia.pdf

Speaking of the Officer core of the Shire, we have several option positions, most notably the Chancellor Minor, and Knight Marshal positions.   If  you have interest, let myself or Corwin know.

Shire Officers

As a reminder the next business meeting is 1/13/19 at 11am in the Camelot Common House (69 Village Ct, Berlin, Ma).  All are welcome as always and I hear their might be donuts…   Officers if you, or a deputy won’t be able to make it please  send in a report.
