In the northwest of the known realm there lies a land
of unrivaled beauty and bounty. Fields of green produce luscious
fruit, tall grain, and support the steps of heavy, fat cattle.
Mysterious figures roam the wide hills, dancing and singing,
crafting fine wares, and bringing home fine trophies from their
hunts. A land of green, of adventure and glory, joy and
friendship.

 

In the middle ages, such were the words to describe
the newfound vistas of Greenland. Unfulfillable boasts were used to
entice hapless volunteers to assist in settling the northern
island. In these modern middle ages, these same phrases describe
the Shire of Midhaven, and all are invited to the annual Harvest
Feast to witness the accuracy of the description for themselves.
Music and song, dancing and fine food will leave no attendant
disappointed.

 

After the three courses of the feast we will be
holding our much anticipated Dessert Auction. This year, the Shire
of Midhaven has determined that the funds raised from the auction
will go towards another feast, at July Coronation 2015, to honor
the outgoing King and Queen. Please bring something to contribute,
be it small or wildly fabulous. We are requesting that attendees
bring both full sized items and also smaller items suitable for
children, we will be having select auctions specificially for the
younger attendees, price ranges adjusted suitably.

 

In addition to the main Dessert Auction, our Chef,
Etole Marchant, will be running his own auction. The prize? He and
a member of his cooking staff will come to your house and cook a
full meal in your kitchen. You provide the food, and he provides
the culinary skill. He is offering ten such prizes, with a starting
bid of $150.00 each. The money raised will be used to repair the
event trailer of the Towne of Keypoynte, of which he is Mayor.

 

At the end of the feast and the auction, as the
evening winds down, there will be dancing until they kick us out of
the site!
