Thank you Baroness Isabel for serving as our Barony’s Minister of Arts and Sciences. In the beforetimes when we had events, it was good to see you and your deputies there, reaching out to newcomers and established artisans in the Barony to organize us to work together. In these times when we are all more isolated for safety, it is more difficult to band together in the same ways that we used to.
During my term, I hope to provide direct support to both individual artisans and guilds, to draw out our best work and try to draw us together in spirit. We will do what we can for each other and for the Barony, like the friendly neighbors we are.
I am grateful for this opportunity to serve the Barony. Please, all of you, feel free to reach out to me if you think there is any way I can help you with your arts and research.
Unto the good populace of the Barony, greetings from Master Alaric!
By the time you read this missive my term as Seneschal will have ended and the Barony will be in the capable hands of my successor, Mistress Odriana. It has been a pleasure to represent you as your Seneschal over the past few years. You are the best Barony in the Known World!
I have had the opportunity to learn more about the SCA and to stretch my boundaries. While I can’t list everyone’s name, I would like to especially thank Baroness Alex, THLady Muirgheal, Mistress Cori, and Duke Christopher who served as the regional and kingdom seneschals during my term. Your guidance and sounding boards were much appreciated and valued. To my predecessor, Mistress Hilderun, who set a great example for me to follow. To Baron Liam, Baroness Constance, and all the Officers … thank you for your service and gentle reminders to me when I missed something needed to be done.
And finally my thanks to the populace of the Barony, Canton and College. You guys are great! I am sure you will give my successor the same support that you have given me.
