Gold Key

The Office of Gold Key maintains a collection of clothing, accessories and feast gear that a branch keeps on hand to loan to guests and new members. Contact our Chatelaine to make arrangements to borrow garb for short periods of time, while you make or acquire your own (our Mistress of Arts and Sciences can help with that!).
