Baronial court - Drop spindles presented to the new fiber arts guild, a new Baronial award announced, the Order of Saint Alfred. Quoting from my own journal on the day: "Over the last few years my Baron and I have thought about adding a second Baronial Award. I was firmly in the 'Only one award' camp myself, but it was something folks mentioned to us and as we went through our tenure and gave out tokens and favors and our one award... it did seem like there was a need for a second award. So we added the Award of St. Alfred (researched by our friend Dame Ursula) Alfred, you see translates to "elf's council" and we are very proud of our Elvish heritage. It is to be an award for exemplary service to the Barony and can be given multiple times." Sorcha Frasier was made the preimere of the Award of St. Alfred.
