Summer will soon be gone and the cool breezes of Autumn will be upon us. Celebrate the time of the harvest at Michaelmas with the Shire of Hunter's Home on September 6th 2008 at Camp Nazareth (339 Pew Road, Mercer, PA 16137). This site is handicap accessible.
Michaelmas was the time for beginning new leases, rendering your accounts and paying your annual dues. The reeve of the land would move among the populous to keep watch over the work and to assure that production was up to expectations. Traditionally this holiday was symbolized with "glofe, gees, and gyngeuer." The glove represented the open-handedness and generosity of the lord of the village, eating goose gave good luck in the coming year, and ginger was believed to provide protection against infection.
