What happier news to announce than when a local friend is elevated to a peer!
Southern Region 1’s very own Marek was called upon, during the morning court at the Festival of the Passing of the Ice Dragon, to sit and contemplate elevation to the Order of the Chivalry.

” I first need to thank Mistress Hildarun Hugelmann, Mistress Chrestienne de Waterdene, Sir Tristen Sexwulf, Master Janos Meszaros, and of course, Lady Sybilla, for their guidance in planning and executing all and various parts of the vigil. Hilda and Chrestienne did the bulk of manning the vigil book, and Lady Aine ny Alain, Lord Sasson della Sancta Victoria, THL Darian Valski, and Sir Ian Kennovan contributed to the food. Hilda also contributed pitchers, and Sir Stefan and Mistress Marsi contributed some platters and bowls. Sir Guido, Sir Alric of the Mists, Baroness Osa, Lord Olaf Steinabrjotr, and Lady MacKenna Henderson helped with set-up and tear-down.”
During his vigil, Marek was visited by a glittering assemblage of friends new and old, and the joy permeating the room was palpable.
