Leonete D’Angely is celebrating her 22nd year in the society this year. Throughout her years in the East Kingdom, she has tried almost every activity the society has to offer. From fencing and fighting to equestrian and calligraphy, perhaps the only activity she hasn’t tried yet is thrown weapons. Leonete’s focus as East Kingdom Chancellor Minor is to help youth and families find their niche in the Society, and to feel that they are full, valued, and participatory members, be they 5, 15, or 45.
In the modern world, Nicole is a fifth grade Math and Social Studies Teacher. She enjoys teaching her students to code, using her costuming skills to help students role play historical figures, and outdoor recess.
This position is currently open. Please contact Mistress Leonete for more details.
Mistress Kis Maria, “Mika” has been an active member of the Society for almost 20 years now. She has held baronial as well as minor kingdom positions relating to youth throughout that time. As a laurel she has a strong love of period arts and sciences, finds that participating in activities allows you to meet and share good times and knowledge with the members of the society that she may otherwise not have the pleasure and honor of spending time with. For fun she has taken up equestrian activities, on occasion can be found on the archery field, or most often serving at feasts.
In the modern world, Mary Jo is a special education teacher; a staunch advocate for inclusion, understanding of the different abilities of all, and in finding the techniques to explore and participate in activities. Her goal is to help all individuals employ their strengths and find skills and techniques to work around their difficulties, to become part of a village, and recognize that their important role within the community is paramount, for all people, not just those who are recognized as differently abled. Communication and understanding is your most useful tool. If you would like to discuss any concerns, difficulties, or just want ideas to help all of youth to fully participate, please feel free to contact her.
Central Region Deputy (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Central New York Regional Deputy) : Lady Toi Poisson de Mortagne
Toi Poisson de Mortagne became involved in the SCA in the spring of 2003. After having attended a medieval faire at Hammond Castle in Gloucester, MA with her family, they were moved to investigate the possibility of engaging in such frolic on a regular basis. Her first event was Boredom War a few weeks later. In the SCA she particularly enjoys creating activities for children, creating sotelties, wearing big jewelry and making beautiful clothing that she can’t wear anywhere else.
Aethelstan joined SCA around 1984, discovering it during a Ren Faire demo in San Antonio (Barony of Bjornsborg) while stationed at Brooke Army Medical Center in the US Army. Military movements allowed him to experience a wide variety of SCA culture and different groups and Kingdoms. He’s held a wide variety of service positions: Chiurgeon and Chronicler – Shire of Montagne du Roi (now Canton) in the West, Knight Marshal – Shire of Whitebuck Forest (now defunct) in Meridies, Seneschal – Canton of Brokenbridge, Crown Province of Ostgardr in the East and Seneschal – Shire of Nordenfjord, incipient in the East. What keeps him going in the SCA is the ever present camaraderie and friendships I have made over the years, the huge diversity of activities, scholarship and skill and the reality that my hobby and sometimes addiction never gets stale.
