Constance of Caldrithig, Order of the Wain, 2012

Who is Constance of Caldrithig?

She is the Exchequer on the Privy Council.

And is that all that she is, and all that she does?

By no means. Also she has been a seneschal, both of her barony and her canton.

Is there not more she does for her barony?

Indeed. She has also served as its calendar secretary, tracking Their Lapine Excellencies’ schedule. As well, she is the barony’s camp cook who plans the menu, sets the budget, does the shopping and much of the cooking.

Has she not also organized events?

She has. She has been the event steward of Feast of the Hare more than once, as well as organized several other events. As well, she has held weekly meetings dedicated to the arts and sciences. She has also been heavily involved with recruitment of potential new members to the Society through demonstrations held at Osgoode and Upper Canada Village.

Should all this service not be recognized, my liege?

Indeed it should.

Therefore, all gentles and nobility, let it be known by all that We, Roak and Elizabeth, King and Queen of the Trillium lands of Ealdormere, in consideration of the most excellent service that Constance of Caldrithig has given, are minded to induct her as a Companion into Our noble Order of the Wain and give her the right to bear the badge of the Order. Furthermore do We bestow upon her a Grant of Arms and the right to bear her] arms with the crest of the Kingdom. Given by Our hands this [day] day of [month], anno societatis [year], at [event] in Our [group hosting event].
