Barony of Eskalya

 

Greetings Eskalya!

Snow has fallen in our fair barony, signaling the imminent arrival of winter’s frost. As we prepare our halls and larders against the dark and cold of the coming season, we look forward to the merriment of our midwinter revelry and feasts.

We first wish to congratulate Their Royal Highnesses, Hans and Helga, whose honorable victory at October Crown has won them the right to be our next King and Queen of the West. We wish them a joyful and successful reign.

As the fall and winter season approaches, the time for celebration is at hand. We saw many of you at the wonderful Samhain event hosted by Her Excellency, Syr Verica. It was a delight to see so many of our friends from far and near take delight in the games and activities planned by our most diligent steward. We congratulate Angela, the new Captain of our Guard, on her honorable victory.

Yule is the time to break out your best garb and share memories of the past year. Dame Elspeth and Lady Ceara have put great effort into planning a joyful Yule celebration. So we hope you’ll join us on December 9 as we celebrate in grand Russian style and raise a toast to friends near and far. Na zdorov’ye!

Arts and Sciences nights continue at the Anchorage Public Library the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm. In November we will have Russian Dancing with Mistress Sorcha and in December we’ll have a class with Duke Skeggi. We’ll take January off or host an open craft night, before heading into 2018 with a class by Mistress Anna in February.

Viscountess Isabella, Arts and Sciences Minister, is currently looking for a deputy/successor. If you’re interested in the position, please contact her and our Seneschal, Duke Skeggi.

Please bring to our attention those members deserving of recognition. If you have any comments or concerns, we are here to listen. You can contact us at events or by message to eskalyabaronesses@gmail.com.

Pray know we remain your servants,

Cynehild and Clare Elena
Baronesses of Eskalya
