As most of you are aware, Baroness Alex (Terri Harteau) has recently been in a major car accident with Baron Janvier (Steven M. Harteau). Because of the future challenges that will presented by the recovery from this accident, Alex has thought it prudent to step down from the office of Seneschal. It has been communicated to me that her wish is for the Shire to vote on a new Seneschal.
There was a virtual Shire meeting tentatively scheduled for Monday, June 14, at 7 PM. This meeting will go forward. Lady Mary (Mary Welker) has volunteered to run the meeting on Zoom.
We will be discussing Shire business, as previously planned. We will also be discussing the method of choosing the new Seneschal. We will NOT be selecting a new Seneschal at this meeting.
That being said: if you are interested in the position, you *must* be at this meeting. It should be noted that the Seneschal will be expected to schedule future meetings and set agendas for them, among other things. Please contact me by PM for more information if you are interested.
Again, we will not be selecting a new Seneschal at this meeting. We will determine a fair method of selecting one at a future meeting.
Finally, I hope you will join me in wishing Baroness Alex and Baron Janvier a speedy recovery.
