CoG News: New Board and Successful Grand Council

Covenant of the GoddessThe 2013 Covenant of the Goddess Grand Council in Salem, MA has now come and gone.  Many EMLC’ers were able to make it up for the event and represent the great state of Florida (and the great Witches and Wiccans who call it home)!

For those who do not know, Grand Council is when the members of Covenant of the Goddess get together to do the Covenant’s work. It’s when budgets are decided upon, bylaws are reviewed, proposals are made, and a new board is chosen.  The new board will be sworn in for their term starting at Samhain. The 2013-2014 Board Is:

Kasha Lezon – National First Officer (Everglades Moon LC)
Lady Mehurt – National Second Officer (Dogwood LC)
Lady Bridget – National Membership Officer (EvergladesMoon LC)
Lady Emrys – National Recorder (Hills and Rivers LC)
Garth Garrett – National Pursewarden (National Solitary)
Jennifer Bennett – National Correspondence Officer (Weavers LC)
Lady Miraselena – National Public Information Officer (Dogwood LC)
Jack Pewett – National Publications Officer (Touchstone LC)

We’d like to extend a huge EMLC CONGRATULATIONS to this new board, and a giant THANK YOU to the outgoing board.  To the new board, may your hands be deft, your minds be clear and your hearts be compassionate. To the outgoing board, thank you for your kind service to the Covenant. To all, may Coventina bless you!

EMLC would also like to send a big THANK YOU to Weavers LC, who put on a fabulous Grand Council! Congrats on a job well done! And, of course, a big Moonie THANKS to those Florida witches who trecked up to Witch City USA to represent us.  We love you guys!
