The Shire of Midhaven is once again holding a Youth Althing. A day of learning and fun for our youth and families where games and gleeful noise is welcomed by all!

Site opens Saturday, April 13 @ 9:00 a.m. and closes @ 6:00 p.m. We ask that you please pre-register so that we have a good idea of how many children we will need supplies for.

If you plan on bringing a minor and you are not the parent/guardian, please have the child’s parent fill out the following Medical Authorization, including a copy of parent’s photo id (sensative info such as SSN may be blacked out but name and signature must be visable). Please bring one copy to leave at the gate and one copy to remain with child.

All minors will also need a Minor Consent form filled out. To save time at gate, please fill it out ahead of time and present upon arrival.

Baroness Arianne of Falconmoors, founding Baroness of Aquaterra wishes to invite all 4 years or older to participate in a class on how to make a bog coat. Those under 10 may need to have an adult with them. There is NO COST to take this class. If you want to make your bog coat during the class, you will need material wide enough to reach from wrist to wrist, scissors, some straight pins, thread to match the material, measuring tape and you. You start the measurments at your arm pits, go up over the front of your shoulders and down the back as long as you wish the coat to be. I recommend that the bottom be at least 3 inches off of the ground. If bringing material, please wash and dry it before you get to site. If you have classes or other fun things to do at these times you are welcome to just come by and get a pattern. I will have one for all that want them.
