February 2017 Business Meeting Minutes

Shire Meeting Minutes 2/23/2017 Note: the Shire meeting was rescheduled from February 16 to the 23 due to lack of officer quorum. New Business: There is a new place and schedule for the shire fencing practice.

Greetings good gentles of the shire! As we pass through the winter months and move closer to the arrival of spring, I bring to you tidings from the Shire.

All are welcome and encouraged to contribute to our Shire news, which by the way needs a name.

Field Trip! Shofuso Japanese Tea House

As the planned A&S activity for April, I am organizing a shire Field Trip to the Shofuso Japanese Tea House in Fairmount Park. The Japanese American Society is hosting two Tea Ceremonies for their annual Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday April 8th. Unfortunately the 1pm ceremony is sold out, but they are holding a second one at 2:30pm by popular demand. The ceremony maxes out at 30 people, and tickets are going really fast. I already bought my mine   so if you are definitely interested and can go, please private message me asap. ~Aurddeilen Name(required) Email(required) Comment(required)...

Tavern Game Night – February 2017 Change

NOTICE: Due to our monthly Shire game night coinciding with Valentine’s Day, the restaurant has advised us that they will NOT have space for us that night. So consequently, we will have to move the venue to another location in February [2017]. So I have decided to host game night at my house. Please note that I reside in a small cape cod style house, and can only comfortably accommodate about 10 people max. So we could set-up a game in my dining room, and another in the Living room. if you are planning to come please indicate that you are “going” so I know exactly how many to expect. Thanks!!!
