The SCA is a hobby organized and operated on the local level by volunteers. This means that all activities and events that occure in the Shire of Glenn Linn rely upon the freely given time, effort and energy of our membership. Because of this, the Shire will grant awards of recognition within the shire as a way of distinguishing and thanking those individuals who have gone above and beyond the normal range of commitment in various aspects of this hobby. At this time the Shire does NOT grant any awards. Any listed below are suggested for the Shires consideration.

The Three Pillars symbol of recognition is earned by those individuals, both shire members and nonmembers, who work unselfishly to strengthen and support the Shire community. Unlike peerages and many other "awards" that have some form of arbitrary judging component that is above and beyond the individuals control, this recognition is earned purely and directly by the actions one takes throughout the year to benefit the Glenn Linn community as a whole.

In order to earn the Three Pillars recognition an individual must complete the requirements in three different areas of activity in the course of one calendar year. These areas are:

The Heart of the Community: The Service Pillar

The Hand of the Community: The Arts & Science Pillar

The Shield of the Community: The Martial Pillar

Symbol: Tawny with three gold column's
     Gold (or) = Generosity
     Orange (tawny) = Worthy ambition
     Column = Fortitude and constancy

The pillars represent the following:
     Center: The Heart Pillar (Service)
     Right: The Hand Pillar (Arts & Sciences)
     Left: The Shield Pillar (Martial)

The Circle Chain represents the duty and obligation that binds a community together.
