Coronets Nobildonna Fiore Leonetta Bardi and Lord Frithuric Ulman:

There’s a lot of stuff going on right now. If you feel a need to pass some complaints up the chain, please complain to us.
Congrats to Aradyn and all those who received awards at Birka.


Seneschal Lady Aaradyn Gyoot
Congratulations to Her excellency, and all those who received awards at Birka.

Curia is on Feb 23rd, if you have comments regarding the agenda that you would like brought to the Crown’s attention, please let me or their excellencies know as soon as possible so we 
can organize my notes before the meeting. The Seneschal of Towers (Thorvald) also as a voice at Curia. 

We are in search of a new Chancellor Minor! Sadly, our wonderful Theo has had to return to Malagentia, and so we are in search of a gentle who wishes to work with the Youth of our Barony. Please to apply. The chancellor minor also speaks for the order of the comet until such time as the members are able to take over the role.

The Chancellor minor is responsible for promoting children’s activities at events and in the Barony. They are a warranted and background checked position.
Stephanie Leatherfoot has expressed interest.

As of March 1, the east kingdom no longer has ANY covid regulations. Site owners, including homeowners, may require masking. We can encourage masking, but not require it. 
Aaradyn will be purchasing an air purifier for Baronial use.

It may also be worth asking individuals to bring some to events if available.
We could also have a build event for Rosenthal Boxes.
Frithuric: Please consider the logistics of storing these before building to many for the Barony.
An e-mail with filter recommendations will be sent to the baronial mail list for individuals who would like to purchase them for events they hold, or to bring to events, they can.

Fiore: The amount of research for my scroll text was extremely awesome, and thank you to everyone who volunteered and assisted with my elevation. I can’t thank you enough.
