Baroness Vivienne Marie de Beauvais, OP
Major Area(s) of Service: I have been most active locally and at War. I did serve for a time as Sycamore Herald and once was drop dead for Silver Buccle. Alot of time at War I spent crying the camp. That was an enjoyable experience. Worked on Demos here in the Bog, talked to newcomers. Washed alot of dishes...and yearly swept up before and after any event we had. I never expected to become a Millrind let alone a Pelican. I was just doing what was fun for me to do with and for my friends.
Prior Offices Held: I started as Chirurgeon for the Bog when we were just starting then took over as herald when our herald had to leave. This was a job I really wanted to do. I was into heraldry even before the SCA and loved helping people design devices and choose names for themselves. I did that for about 7 or 8 years. At the present time I am still Bog Herald as well as Baroness. I was Seneschal for about a year. Later took on as A&S officer. I was interim seneschal when one of our incumbent Seneschals had to step down. I was one of the people instrumental in encouraging the Bog to take Baronial status. I stood as retainer for Baroness Charmaine for three years as well as being her Court Herald. Did the Herald thing again for Baron and Baroness Aquila and AElfra.
Area(s) Peer can advise gentles on: Heraldry, of course. I like explaining how to design a device and create a name. I enjoy╩teaching people how to make banners and flags for display. I think it is important that people are able to recognize their Kingdom banners on the field╩as well as their own Fighting/Fencing/Archery/Thrown Weapons forces.
I dabble in dancing, calligraphy, illumination, garb making, and thrown weapons.
I like working with newcomers and know that if I can't answer a question about something, I know where to send them to find the answer or who can answer it for them.
Service. I have been serving ever since I came into the SCA in one capacity or another. It may have been mostly on the local level, behind the scenes, quietly in the background, but in the long run,╩I believe╩it benefited the Bog,╩our╩Kingdom, and the SCA. And I am not about to quit just yet... Pas pour vous, pas pour moi, mais pour nous, my motto: Not for you, not for me, but for us. .╩
Current Group: Barony of St. Swithin's Bog
