The Forty-Fourth Year

Masked Ball -- Darkwood

September 19, 2009 (AS XLIV)

Masonic Lodge Santa Cruz,
Santa Cruz, CA

From The Page (August, 2009):

The Barony of Darkwood is coming together to enjoy a day of revelry. Her Excellency, Baroness Rose wishes to invite all to spend the day with her filled with dancing, games, food with a theme of Shakespearean Frivolity. Dance classes will be held in the afternoon along with games in a separate room (Live chess, anyone? How about giant Jenga?) and maybe an informal bardic circle. There will also be a mask making class for adults and children alike so all may have a chance to participate in the Parade of Masks in the evening. In the evening there will be the Masked Ball itself. Music, dance, laughter, and tables of finger foods created by our talented Zinaida Or'shinaia. There may even be a couple of contests on site to test your abilities to flatter as only The Bard himself could. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies please contact the cook, Zinaida, directly at (email address omitted).
