Hawkwood's Baronial Birthday
May 15- 17, 2015
Barony of Hawkwood
“Our Society is built on the ideals of Chivalry and Courtesy, but runs by the concept of Service.” (From the SCA Newcomer’s Portal - http://welcome.sca.org/service/)
Even those who have achieved our Society’s highest accolades, offer of themselves, their time and their efforts to benefit our Barony, our Kingdom, our Society. Through their
sacrifices, do others learn the benefit and satisfying reward of service.
Hawkwood’s own peers undertake this day, to take on the duties of overseeing the aspects of this event, and to teach and guide others in the ways of joyful service. They invite one and all to join them, in celebration of Hawkwood’s Birthday, the coming of Spring, and of service to the Society which we all love!
