Barony of Axemoor cancels Christmas Revel

The Barony of Axemoor (New Orleans, La.), which suffered the greatest damage from Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, has canceled its annual Christmas Revel for this year.

The following was posted by the baronial seneschal, Gellir Gunnarrsson.

Greetings all,

It is with a heavy heart that I post this message. As everyone is well aware, Axemoor & Seleone were smashed by Katrina. Due to the evacuation, Axemoor will not have the manpower nor (more than likely) site to hold Christmas Revel this year. Many of our families are scattered throughout the country. We would like to hold the weekend on the calendar for future Revels.

I would like to thank all of the Society for its continuous outpouring of support and help. During these times of crisis it is good to have our SCAdian family to support us. My prayers go out to all who lost so much from this tragedy. For the time being (until the Navy allows us to return to New Orleans) THL Tegan will be acting Seneschal for Axemoor. I have and will continue constant communication with her during the evacuation.

Axemoor will rebuild.
With all my heart I remain,
In service to Gleann Abhann & Axemoor.
Ld. Gellir Gunnarrsson
