Question from our Seneschal on Financial Support for Shire Wars

Hi All,

We have been asked to consider financially supporting Shire Wars, an event to be hosted by the Shire of Blak Rose on October 18-20, 2020 in Jonestown, PA.

The deadline for our decision is May 15. As that falls between Shire meetings and is a financial commitment, I plan to put it to an officer vote. If you have any questions / concerns / comments, please contact me or any officer by Sunday afternoon or as soon as possible.

–Review the Shire Wars IX Event Prospectus, which explains the event and financial responsibility.

–View discussion on the subject on the Shire Facebook page.

Monthly Mtg Date Survey

Hello Friends,

During the February Shire meeting, I let everyone know that I work every other weekend and, much of the time, my weekend to work falls on the third weekend of the month (which is our typical meeting weekend).

So, our meeting date may need to change. 

Please participate in this survey to help us determine when it would be most convenient for people to attend future meetings.  (Answer Survey)

We will continue to alternate the meeting location each month (between north and south sites).

Yours in Service,
Aoife
Shire Seneschal 2020-2021

POTLUCK SOCIAL (at 12-Noon)
