Thanks to all who raised their hands to offer themselves up and to all who are staying, without you guys this wouldn’t work. We love you all. Also thank you to our outgoing officers, we really appreciate the service and work you’ve done.
Happy holidays and a Happy New Year to all!!

From the Acting Seneschal:
As I’ve mentioned, there was an on-line vote held among the officers for those positions for which there was only one candidate. These being:
- Fencing Marshal: Alexander MacLachlan
- Historian: Mistress Sofya Gianetta di Trieste
- Minister of Arts and Sciences: Thorfinn Hrothgeirsson
- Minister of Lists: Marion of York
- Webminister: Anne of Ostgardr
This vote ended this past Saturday night, and all of these people have been approved by the officers.
Three of these people were running for re-election, and two were running for the first time. Mistress Sofya, Anne, and I will continue in our roles (listed above). Thorfinn and Marion are scheduled to assume their positions as of this coming January 1st. As the position of MOL is currently vacant, I have asked Marion to take on the role immediately as an appointment for the remainder of the year.
I would like to thank all of these people for their past and continuing service. Everyone looks forward to working with them.
