Although the people of Æthelmearc and the Known World may be despondent at the postponement of our beloved War until next summer, the people of Pennsic have rallied like the army they are to the call of those in need!
At a time when medical bills and unemployment drive appeals to food banks to new heights and regular donors are unable to help, the #100kfromtheSCA initiative was created to combat the food shortage crisis in the Butler/Portersville area surrounding the Pennsic site with donations from Scadians across the world.
Now the people of Æthelmearc have one more reasons to look to our rulers with love and pride. At the command of Their Royal Majesties Maynard and Liadain, Kingdom Exchequer THNoble Rhys Penbras ap Dafydd donated Æthelmearc’s ENTIRE Pennsic Party fund for 2020 — totaling some $775 dollars — to the Portersville Food Pantry.
This disbursement from the hands of our gracious Monarchs brings the total to nearly $14,000, according to Cindy Burns, astonished food bank administrator.
One can only wonder if the rulers of the other signatory nations of the Pennsic Treaty will follow suit, or will the Virtue of our beloved monarchs stand unchallenged? VIVAT REX, VIVAT REGINA, VIVAT AETHELMEARC!
