Wow, what a day! That's it. That's the best I can do right
now. We've been trying to work out how to sum up yesterday
and after several hours contemplation, no set of words will
do Tir-y-Don justice. So I'll settle for a little exuberance
and ask that each of you understand our hearts are bursting
with love, joy, happiness, warmth, pride and a hundred other
words that simply don't encompass the emotions we feel right
now. Hannah and I know this isn't unique to us. This is what
it means to be part of Tir-y-Don.
We want thank everyone that came to Tir-y-Don's Baronial
Birthday and Investiture. We were showered with
encouragement, support, and confidence throughout the day.
We had visitors of long time friends who hadn't ventured
back to the SCA in years and by newcomers who just wanted to
check things out. We are humbled by the friendship shared by
all our friends old and new. We were also visited by a
couple mundane gentles that wandered into our celebration.
Did you see them? They saw you. Their faces were amazed and
filled with excitement at the pageantry you displayed. While
speaking with them, I saw the glimmer in their eye that was
but a small spark of what Hannah and I felt the entire day.
We also want to give a special thanks to all who worked to
make the day happen. Your efforts were an inspiration to
all. These are just a few of the good people that shared
their time to make the event so special. Our Event Steward
Lady Muriel did an amazing job as well as our head cook Lady
Margaret and her many wonderful kitchen staff. The Future
Baronage Council for the wonderful lunch fundraiser. The MIC
Master Llwyd, Marshals Sir Timoch, Lord John Bigheavd, Sir
Tnek, Lord Leofric, and MOL Lady Gabrielle. Also thank you
to Lady Cairistiona for running the A+S competition.
There are so many others that we noticed through the day.
The service you've provided to Tir-y-Don and Atlantia is no
small feat. This is also why I want to highlight one last
individual. It's not only the major tasks that are needed to
have an awesome event. It's also the many small tasks that
get you from one point to another. Thank you Baroness Kaleeb
for putting together the service tokens. The service you
inspired through this program was carried on by so many
people offering to help others throughout the day.
Thank you for proving once again that the
dream is alive and well.
Aidan and Hannah
