A Reminder

We’ve left this account in the past and would love it if you could join us in the present by visiting http://revelrysociety.com and following us. Thanks!

An important announcement regarding The Society for the Preservation of Historic Revelry

Dear friends, followers, fans, and members. We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you that we’ve moved our account to a new home that can accommodate the full spectrum of our Society. This was done mainly to accommodate new members, furnishing them with the ability to post their research and findings.

Our work will continue at the same address you’ve always known, but if you’ve been following us through your Tumblr dashboard only, please visit us at http://revelrysociety.com and re-follow us.

In true Revelry Society spirit, and to warm up our new account, we’re going to re-blog at random our entire catalogue of posts that we’ve amassed over the past 1.5 years. You’ll see these in your dashboard or on our site along with the new content resulting from our continued research into the world of revelry.

We’re also canvassing for new members. If you have something you’d like to research for Revelry Society please get in touch with us and we can add you to our Tumblr account, allowing you access to other members of the Society and our followers throughout the world.

Lastly, if you haven’t done so, we invite you to join us on Facebook.

Good day.
