Come revel and play at the Griffin Faire as summer draws nigh. Tis to be filled with great excitement and expectation as our world will open to the eyes of the young. For this event will open its gate on the Morning of Saturday to the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes.  With great energy and anticipation there hopes to be a wide variety of classes, games, dancing, combat, merchants and merriment. So let your inner child come to play and explore your craft and knowledge so perhaps you will be inclined to share. Our history will never be so real, as when we see it reflected in the eyes of the young. This will be a wonderful opportunity to showcase your unique talents to an eager group of Girl Scouts. While allowing them a firsthand look through a portal of time and magic that is the SCA.
