Let the word go forth that the Shire of Sterlynge Vayle will be hosting a Sterlynge Schola on January 17, 2009 at the Trinity Memorial Church, 44 Main St., Binghamton NY.
The Site opens to the populace at 9:00am and closes at 6:00pm. We are planning classes from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., with a one-hour break for lunch at noon. Anyone found still lingering in the halls or classrooms after 6:00 p.m. may be pressed into service for site clean up.
Dame George Anne has agreed to serve as Dean of the Schola. We have plenty of classrooms and would encourage all interested teachers to come and share their knowledge and all eager students to attend. We are hoping to have scribal, sewing, brewing, dancing, martial, heraldry and other classes. Please contact Dame George Anne, _thegeorg AT stny.rr.com_ if you would like to teach a class, or if you have any questions regarding the classes being offered.
A hearty lunch will be available so that no one should go away hungry or miss an essential class. We will also be offering refreshments in the late afternoon. For dietary concerns you may contact Lady Mariana Maria Pietrosanti, MKA Michelle Yurko _mmyurko AT aol.com_
