Dec. 21 Yule in the Shire

It’s the joyous time of year when we come together to celebrate the ending of the old and the beginning of the new. Join the Shire of Caer Adamant at the beautiful and evocative Greenbank Mills (Wilmington, Delaware) for good cheer, a bite to eat, and maybe a few other little traditions of the seasons. Since this falls on the actual Winter Solstice (11:19 pm in our hemisphere) we will try to have some traditional celebrations such as a bonfire and other outdoor activities, weather permitting.

If you wish to help decorate the Mill or want to help with things to do during the evening, please send Lady Dionise O’Towie (Denise Setchko) an IM to volunteer or with ideas.

Saturday, December 21, 2019 5 PM – 9:30 PM

Event Schedule:
5:00 pm Doors Open
5:30 pm Shire Business Meeting & Cocktail Hour (all are welcomed to attend)
6:30 pm Potluck Feast, Games, Storytelling and more
9:30 pm Clean up

If you are still there at 9:30 pm, that means you are staying to help clean up. 
Thank You!
