The 40th annual Peasant’s Revel took place on July 13 at a park here in our Barony. The weather was great, the peasants were not too disruptive except during a spirited food fight. The supper of stew, homemade bread, cheese (which had been rolled down a hill first) and fruit was the perfect cap to the day. See you all next year, Peasants!
