Penned on the 3rd day of the 12th moon,16th YRA

To the Denizenry of Her Majesty's Castle Marrach;

In accordance to the will of the Lord Chamberlain, and in upholding the duties charged to me as Aspirant Chronicler, I hereby submit the chronicle of Frosty Fun Fest Opening Ceremony.

Denizens gathered in the Outer Bailey courtyard this evening to witness the opening celebration of this year's Frosty Fun Fest, led by Mistress Euphelia. Individuals from both Bailies attended in the Main courtyard and took part in a scavenger hunt, a game that would continue throughout the week, along with festivities.

In its second year, the Frosty Fun Fest, opened at seven late bells on the thirtieth day of the eleventh moon without a hitch in the Main Courtyard. The event started with introduction of Lady Sinvy, the festival's sponsor, who spoke to the crowd briefly. Afterwards, Mistress Euphelia divulged more of what was to come for the week and answered questions of the crowd that had congregated in the Courtyard. Bringing a renewed sense of community to the Keep with the festival, Mistress Euphelia ended the ceremony with invitation to those in attendance to participate in a Scavenger Hunt. Many paired off and eagerly began seeking the items listed on their cards. Submissions for the Hunt will be taken until Freya's day night at midnight. Those not in attendance may still join by contacting Mistress Euphelia.

Deputy Siward said he enjoyed meeting everyone that attended. He was surprised by the charity of Lord Bernier, who offered a token to the Deputy as part of his quest during the Scavenger Hunt. The Deputy, eager to attend more events of the festival, spoke on the purpose of the charms given out to the attendees. For each charm, the recipient has a chance at a raffle at the end of the festival.

This chronicler spoke more with Mistress Euphelia to find out the history pertaining to this special event. This event was started by Mistress Euphelia last year to encourage everyone to celebrate our natural landscape and bring cheer. The turnout this year was a bit surprising for Mistress Euphelia who indicated that she had to order more snowflake charms and bracelets, which were handed out to those who attended the ceremony.

Attendance of the event included that of seras Anna, Carla, Klara, Trenna, Tamiko, Watchwoman Vessa and sera Merrynn. Also in attendance were sers Atmos, Ignoia, Kobe and Rotbart and Deputy Siward.

Those from the Inner Bailey of the Court included Mistresses Euphelia, Meryl and Wilena. Lords Vestio and Bernier graced the event with their presence. The most surprising and delightful attendee was that of Princess Maeve and her pet baby wyvern, Nightfire. It is said that the Princess was so excited, that her enthusiasm and joy were contagious to all around her.

When asked what she liked most about the ceremony, Mistress Euphelia stated ”Everyone enjoying themselves and having fun.”

Working over the past few moons, Mistress Euphelia has created many fun-filled events for this coming week. They include indoor games on Moon's day and a tournament of arms on Tiu's day evening ran by Master Aratan. On Woden's day there will be a segregated evening of socializing. Men will meet in the Bowler's lounge and women in the Theater. Thor's day event is a surprise, which leads to a outdoor games, ice skating on the ice rink which will be built by Master Taralyn and a bonfire on Freya's day evening, ending the week long celebration. All events shall start at seven late bells, unless, otherwise noted upon the bulletin board in the Lecture Hall.

This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as I humbly ask that the readers indicate to me through their discretion any falsehood I may have mistakenly communicated. It is through the preservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Grace and give strength to those that will follow in our wake.

In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, the Lady Chamberlain, the Chronicler's Office, and the Denizenry of our Gracious Queen's Realm;

Aspirant Chronicler
