Feast of Favours December 10, 2005 Shire of Cold Keep Prince
George BC Come join us in Cold Keep for a Feast of Favours to
celebrate the season. The intent of the Feast of Favours is
to encourage you to give a gift, in the form of a token, to
someone you honour and respect. Or present your token to
someone you don’t know well but would like to know better. Or
present your token to someone who has never been to an event
before as a way to welcome them to Cold Keep. BUT you are not
to give your token to That Special Person you would normally
bestow a favour upon (eg. husband, wife, best friend, child,
etc). You may make the token ahead of time and bring it to
the event, or you can make it on site. Materials (felt
pieces, beads, wool and ribbon) will be provided for you to
create a token, or you can bring your own fabric, trim, etc.
There will be a potluck dinner: please bring a *seasonal*
dish, enough to feed 8-10 people. A list of ingredients would
be appreciated. The highlight of the evening will be the
presentation of the second annual Light of the North. The
Light of the North is given in recognition for excellence in
service to, and enrichment of, the Shire, and is presented to
one worthy individual chosen by previous recipients of the
token and the populace of Cold Keep. After the presentation,
all bards are invited to enliven the evening with song and
story. Seasonal songs and tales are encouraged, in keeping
with the time of year. Events of the Day: 11:00 site opens
