      Subject: [Village Green] Silent Auction at Rites of Spring to Benefit an SCA Family in Need

      Greetings unto all those gathered from Caitriona MacDhonnachaidh, Midlands 
      Regional Seneschal.
      Good Lords and Ladies, 
      With the permission of the Event Steward of Rites of Spring and Their 
      Excellencies of Illiton, I am asking all those assembled at Rites of Spring to 
      consider helping an SCA family from Ravenslake, the Murphys, by participating in 
      a silent auction.  Dad has been fighting the good fight for about ten years 
      versus a catastrophic and progressive illness which has resurfaced ferociously 
      and now Mom is dealing with multiple hospitalizations and job loss, and because 
      of those occurrences, financially they need some help.  The entire family of six 
      are wonderful, active members of their shire who love history and the arts and 
      sciences.  They are the kind of people who normally answer a call like this one.
      So, with that, I ask the following:  donations of SCA appropriate items, such as 
      books, jewelry, leather goods, glassware, metalgoods, all sorts of things!  
      Please bring items cleaned, if need be, to the silent auction.  If you have no 
      goods you feel are suitable for donation, please then bring your expendable cash 
      and bid on items in the auction.  I will accept the donations in the Merchant 
      area.  Please find me at Spicewell's.
      It is my understanding that Celtic Sun is hosting a fundraising bake sale to 
      assist as well.  Additionally, a portion of Spicewell's proceeds for the day 
      will go to the family's fund.  Please stop by and see if there are things that 
      strike your fancy, and know you're helping support some of our own.
      I have seen the generosity of the Midlands in the past, rallying around those in 
      need, and humbly ask the assistance of each of you reading this today.  If 
      you're attending Rites of Spring, please come take part in this endeavor, with 
      your donations and bids.  Help us rewrite Murphy's Law to "When something does 
      go wrong, count on the Midlands to help."
      Humbly in Your Service, 
      Caitriona MacDhonnachaidh, CE, CW, APF
