Hi everyone,
 
As a new addition to the list I have been hesitant to answer some of the questions posted. But as a member of the society and an adopted part of Elfsea I would like to say that Milo and I and our family are at your service for whatever is needed. We have come to know, love and respect the family of Elsea. We are honored by your acceptance of us and we are more than willing to provide whatever talents we have to make the investiture work. 
 
I believe that if we all help we can make this happen in a BIG way. 
 
Yours in service,
 
Angelique and Milo

Good Morning!

Cassandra and I had dinner with Baron Arthur last night. He sends his
greetings. We discussed the current Baronial situation and the
questions
posted by Master Richard. Arthur reminded us of the original
investiture,
the one to create the Barony.

There were several candidates at the time and they agreed to create the
investiture ceremony together. They decided upon the format - feast,
procession, seating, etc. - and then left enough room in the plans for
personalization once the Baron and Baroness were chosen. Essentially,
the
core of the ceremony was decided upon and then "flavor" was added, be it
Celtic, Elizabethan or French.

This seems to fall in line with what many people have been suggesting.
It
could be accomplished by either using a committee composed of members of
the
populace and officers or the announced candidates as was done
originally.
The concept seems to promote unity within the Barony and should also
allow
us to have a ceremony that is inherently Elfsea.

This, obviously, seems like a good idea to us. (Not just because he is
my
Knight.) We are offering our home for this meeting if the Barony would
like
to go down this path. We also started thinking of different things that
will have to be covered or might be fun to do as part of the
festivities.

At the first investiture, the soon-to-be-created Barony hosted a tea in
the
morning for the landed Baron and Baronesses in attendance to meet their
soon
to be cousins. Also, maybe we should formalize the number of people for
the
high table at feast, so Lord Such-n-Such knows how big to make his
marzipan
sculpture of the first dog to attend Defender. It would be nice for our
cooks to have an idea of what they are facing, if they choose to present
to
the high table, tea or lunch. If every candidate wants to include the
past
Elfsea Baron and Baronesses in their investiture (and they agree), we
could
start on procession banners now. There are many generalities that can
be
nailed down now.

Thank you for your time and we hope that this leads to even greater
possibilities for the Barony.

In Service,

William and Cassandra
