Volunteers needed for the Known World Children’s Fete
at Pennsic XLI (41)
from Atlantia!
Good gentles, please join us for a
day of friendship and jubilee on Wednesday, August 8th from 1 to 4 pm in
the Barn for the Known World Children’s Fete.
As in previous years, the Fete will
have a variety of arts and crafts, ongoing activities and live performances
amuse and delight. We may be having some activities that involve water, so
please make sure your young ones are dressed appropriately. There will be
snacks and drinks available for children and their parents.
The Fete is designed for children
ages four and up. Children ages four, five and six must have an adult (or
who is at least 14 years old) remain with them throughout the festivities.
Older children should be checked on periodically by parents or guardians to
ensure their safety and suitable behavior.
Parents and guardians please note
that if your child has food allergies or other health issues that they are
unable to manage or if they may not leave the party unescorted, you should
remain with your child at the Fete. Due to the large numbers of children
attend the Fete, organizers cannot be responsible for these issues. The
or guardian’s location during the party must be given as children come
check-in at the Fete. We ask that children do not bring personal articles
them while attending the Children’s Fete, as the organizers will not be
responsible for lost, broken or stolen items.
are Always Needed!
Each year, on the Wednesday of War
Week, we celebrate the youth of the Society by providing younger members a
filled afternoon at Pennsic War. However, the party cannot take place
the generous volunteers who give of their time and energy each year.
We can never have too many people
helping. Volunteers should arrive at the barn at 12:30 PM.
We are also requesting Fete
volunteers to wear pink during the Fete in honor of Duchess Arielle the
the founder of the Known World Children’s Fete.
If you would like to help, or need
additional information, you may contact: Duchess Isabel Grimault at (706)
399-9310, no calls after 10 PM EST, or duchessisabel at, or at
please leave a message at Strawberry Fields (B6). You may also contact Lady
of Highland Foorde at hfyouth at, (301)
520-9595, no
calls after 9 PM EST, or at Pennsic at Finis Terra (B09) or Highland Foorde
We are seeking the help of volunteers with this year’s Known World
Children's Fete at Pennsic. The Fete will be on August 8, 2012 from 1:00pm
to 4:00pm at the Barn. If you can sing a song, dance a jig, paint a face,
smile and laugh a lot, color a picture, have fun or any sort of other
activities, then we could use you! We are truly in need of individuals or
groups that can offer their time to run and/or sponsor activities (arts and
crafts, games, dancing, supplies, prizes, etc.). Some of the popular
activities are:
* Face painting
* Foam sword play (We need human pells who die well!)
* Storytellers
* Jugglers
* Puppeteers
We are also looking for volunteers to:
* Assist with the sign-in for the children.
* Persons to help ensure the other volunteers are getting water and other
* Fete security to ensure registration/sign-in and safety.
* Assistance with set-up and/or break-down.
You do not have to be there for the entire 3 hours... but any help you may
offer would be greatly appreciated. We have had as many as 400 children in
attendance, and more every year! The Fete is great fun. If you want action
and excitement, this is the place for you!
If you cannot physically volunteer at the Fete but you, your household,
Barony or local group would still like to help in some way... maybe
sponsoring an activity will be the best way for you to assist us in having
a wonderful Fete.
Please continue to encourage and promote participation in the Children's
Fete! If you will be at Pennsic, but you had not previously volunteered
with the Children's Fete this year, we are asking you to please reconsider.
We would love to show the support of all Atlantians - and SCAdians as a
whole, at the fete this year.
Thank you for your time, effort and consideration in this matter and the
fete as a whole! Please contact me offline if you are interested in
volunteering or sponsoring and activity please contact me at
duchessisabel at for more details.
Yours in Honor & Service to the Youth,
Duchess Isabel Grimault
