Virtual Baronial Council – Wed, July 29

Barony of Lyondemere Council Meeting
July 29, 2020 – 7:00 PM Pacific Time

The Barony of Lyondemere will be having a Baronial Council meeting via Zoom. Zoom details will be shared the day of the meeting. (You can request Zoom details by email – seneschal@lyondemere.org).

We will be running this like a normal Baronial Council, so we will be needing officer reports, updated on old projects (Anniversary), current projects, and 2020 events.

All are welcome to attend this business meeting. This is a non-garb event, online. If your computer can’t do Zoom, please feel free to call in on the zoom telephone numbers that will be provided with the links closer to the meeting.

If you can’t make the Zoom meeting and you are an officer, feel free to message the Seneschal with any reports (seneschal@lyondemere.org). Any questions? Let me know.
