Business Meetings, Practices, & Social Activities

Monthly Meetings


Each month the Shire convenes a meeting to provide updates on activities and plan events. This is also an opportunity to socialize with other Shire members. New attendees are welcome!

Immediately following the meeting, Shire members participate in arts & science projects and archery. Garb (costume) is not expected for business meetings.

Monthly meetings are held from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM Central Time Zone. An archive of Shire by-laws and meeting minutes are located here.
