Good afternoon. As people prepare for attending
Pennsic I would like
to remind them
of the Children's Fete held every year in the Barn. We are looking
for volunteers to
staff the fete this year and I am trying to reach as many folks as
cross post the letter following this email to as many lists as you

Known World Children's' Fete
The Annual Known World Children's Fete will take place on Wednesday,
August 6th from
1 to 4 pm in the Barn.
Traditionally, the Children's Fete is sponsored by a lady of the
Rose of Atlantia
and is held to honor the youth of the SCA. This year, in addition to
youth of our Society, we would like to dedicate the Fete to Duchess
Schattenwald. Duchess Aislinn was a joyous person who celebrated
life and embodied
the spirit of the SCA.
As in previous years, the Fete will have a variety of arts and
activities and live performances to amuse and delight all ages. We
may be having
some activities that involve water or messes, so please make sure
your young ones
are dressed appropriately. There will be light snacks and drinks
children and their parents.
The Fete is designed for children ages four and up. Those children
ages four, five
and six must have an adult (or teen who is at least 14 years old)
remain with them
throughout the festivities. Older children should be checked on
parents or guardians to ensure their safety and suitable behavior.
Parents and guardians please note that if your child has food
allergies or other
health issues that they are unable to manage or if they may not
leave the party
unescorted, you should remain with your child at the Fete. Due to
the large numbers
of children that attend the Fete, organizers cannot be responsible
for these issues.
The parent or guardian's location during the party must be given as
through check-in at the Fete. We ask that children do not bring
with them while attending the Children's Fete, as the organizers
will not be
responsible for lost, broken or stolen items.
We are currently still in need of volunteers for the party. We have
need of gentles
that want to be sponsors of their own chosen activity or help with
need additional people. Gentles are needed to set up and help clean
up, and also to
provide general help (i.e. signing in children, serving
staff, etc.). We can never have too many people helping. Volunteers
will need to be
at the barn at noon if they want to help with setup of the Fete.
