Sad Tidings

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Fran Lefkowitz, known in the SCA as Lady Tseepora of the Debatable Lands. Fran and Al Lefkowitz were the long time hosts of the Debatable Choir Practice and the Parents of Mistress Ts’vee’a bas Tseepora Levi. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Lefkowitz family.

Funeral service will be held at Rodef Shalom Temple in Oakland on Sunday at 2pm. The address is 4905 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15213.

In Caritate,

Brandubh et Hilderun

New Baronial Champions!

Choosing Baronial Champions is always difficult, particularly for the peaceful arts. This past Saturday at 12th Night, our Artisans, Scientists and Bards came out in force, and showered the Barony with their gifts of art.

The Baronial Bardic Competition had a record 11 entrants, and had the audience in tears of both sorrow and laughter. The Arts & Sciences Display was a wonder to behold, and included beginners to Laurels, some very impressive documentation, and all the works displayed were representative of the talent of our bright A&S Community. Without further ado:

Your New Baronial Bard: Lady Beatrix of Anglesey
Seconded by: Brehyres Gwendolyn the Graceful

Your New A&S Champion: Lady Aurelia Argentia Prima
Seconded by: The Honorable Lady Rachel Dalicieux

Vivant the New Champions, seconds, outgoing Champions (Mistress Fredeburg and Mistress Arianna), and all those gentles who put themselves forth for consideration!

In Levitate et Caritate, and Cheers,
Baron Brandubh and Baroness Hilda
