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 whieh supports the Celtic history and culture, contact the Chancery.
Beginning in 2015, the member's publicaation, 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.

The Society to Incorporate
The Society has decided to become an incorporated non-profit, and is currently undertaking documents to achieve this. We will also apply as a recognized IRS 501c3. This will permit the Society to manage its own charitable programs without the assistance and management of the Tomanian Society.
Adriene Tomkins has been admitted to the Society of the Lees of Virginia through descent of Richard "the Immigrant" Lee.
