Flashback to December - Afternoon Tea & Assembly

We have been a bit quiet, thrown into a state of limbo by Nora's tragic accident and some other negative things that happened during the past months. But we're still here, and planning is underway for a spate of new events, including a Winter Ball! We're very excited to have Stephanie Robertson Maier back in the fold, and she is inspired. And you all know what happens when she is inspired... all I can say is GOOD THING Her last little assembly was a delight. A delicious tea followed by dancing and a lively round of Speculation! Here's a little movie of the group warming up with the old and simple standard "Hole in the Wall"


 Please also know, I (Stephanie Johanesen) am arranging some dance workshops to be held possibly once a month at Sandy. Along with those, and the new events, we also have a large costume fair that will be for all manner of costume periods and styles, including cosplay and more. Details to come! Keep checking our events page for more details. Here are some pics from December's tea & assembly.

An ORS Leader In Need

Nora, also known as Lady Jersey.
If you haven't joined the ORS Facebook group, it's likely you are unaware that Nora Azevedo, the ORS's excellent treasurer and one of the group's valuable leaders, was, along with her husband Bob, involved in a violent car crash which only by the miracle of modern engineering, they barely survived.

In case you need evidence of the severity of their crash
Thank you for donating!
Because the medical bills will be insurmountable, we are posting their GoFundMe campaign so that members who understand Nora's value to the group, and care about her can contribute towards her safe recovery.

As you can imagine, this has had a significant emotional impact on the whole group and we want to make sure that Nora is up and at it soon. The ORS needs her! So please contribute! Thank you.
