WORD FROM OUR DIRECTOR’S DESK
Welcome Spring!!!!!!!! It’s been a really dark cold winter and with the warmer weather and sunshine my thoughts have turned to our 31st Annual Ye Merrie Greenwood Renaissance Faire. I have been considering some exciting changes and I am looking forward to starting to walk the park and lay things out. I have heard rumors that Storytelling has come up with yet another twist on a Grecian story, and frankly I think someone should take those books on the Iliad and the Odyssey away from Michealla. The performers have already been booked, and the merchants have begun to send in their applications. It’s starting to get exciting around here. And guess what we are planning to add to Greenwood Faire this year??????????? Automatic Teller Machines!!!!!!!! That should make it easier for folks who never carry cash or check books to get into the Faire this year.
The 31st Annual Ye Merrie Greenwood Faire is scheduled, so plan ahead, circle the dates on your calendar, set your personal and work time accordingly, and be there.
The Faire will be September 23 & 24, 2017, with setup on September 22, and pack-away on September 25. Make your plan to be there, then, work your plan.
Greenwood is people. Therefore, it is important to be open to, and recruit, new members. If you know someone who would be an asset to the group, talk to them of Greenwood and bring those prospective members to First Rehearsal at 10 AM.
AND NOW A WORD FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Last year was the first year at our new site and everyone just loved it. Thank you to the folks who work in Parks and Rec. for the city of Kennewick for all of their help. Trust me, we needed it! There were loads of things to learn and change, but it was a great Faire. Let’s have another fun Ye Merrie Greenwood Faire this year too. The Glove is not up yet, but the time is getting close!
