June activities

Activities for the month of June were discussed at last week’s business meeting. They can be viewed on the meetings page. Also, we have a project day scheduled for June 28 (Saturday) with the option to finish on Sunday. We will be building chest benches, a great camping accessory. This will be held at a private residence, so email the seneschal for more information.

And don’t forget, June 14 is the Mid-Summer Knights Festival at Christ Episcopal Church. We will be participating in the festival by demonstrating various activities for the visitors. Check out the demos page for more details.

We have some new photos to share! Over the past few weeks we have been making banners to hang in the great hall at the church. We made four banners, each one about 7′ by 10′. We can’t wait to show them off at Spring Training in a few weeks.
