      Heart felt greetings from Lady Akiko Catherine O'Brien,  Dean of Youth Arts and Education for The Royal University of the Midrealm (RUM).


      I hope everyone is well and rested from the summer activities. .


      This RUM will be  Dec. 2, 2006.  It will be held in Decatur , IL .  RUM even has a theme.  The theme will be Holidays In History and Twelfth Night Presents.  


      This will also be my last RUM as Dean of Youth.  Thank you to all my teachers and volunteers for making these past two years a very memorable experience. I will miss doing this job but on the plus side I got to meet some really fantastic and wonderful teachers. J 

      And with that for the last time,  I’m sending out a request for youth teachers and volunteers to teach at this Dec. 2 RUM.


      Requirements: No experience, But welcome.  No pay, Well depends on how you define payments. ;-)  The children are the future of the SCA and it will continue to be  my goal to provide meaningful,  yet fun classes.
