Twelfth Night: A Day of Gifting

description:
From ancient times, midwinter is the season of giving and receiving gifts. Come Bearing Gifts! Help us Celebrate! Gifts are the things that we share. Gifts come in all shapes and sizes, some wrap-able, some not. Celebrate your gifts in the SCA -- what do you have to do, to teach, to donate? And in return, enjoy the bounty that the SCA has to offer to you.

We have several gift exchanges planned; come prepared to offer an item or a service for the day (No gifts over $12.00 please). Or bring canned goods for a food drive to give to our greater community. Location:
