Annual Grants Available
Members are reminded that the Chancery is now accepting recommendations for Grants from the Society. If you know of an organization that might benefit from a grant, one which supports the Celtic history and culture, contact the Chancery.
Beginning in 2015, the member's publication , the Awen, will be forwarded directly to active members. The vast collection of previous issues will remain available to all our friends and guests to the site. The Awen is being classified now as a member benefit, but members will be able to forward the issues to their friends as well.
