WELCOME to the sixty-fourth issue of the Bay City Post - Keeping you updated on the best city on the Grid! Let's see what's happening in our fair city as we move into a brand new year!
The annual Prim Drop was held at the Fairgrounds on New Year's Eve, with our own (Not The) Mayori, Marianne McCann, spinning tunes in remembrance of the many musicians we lost in 2016. Everyone was dressed to the nines as they danced the night away (see our Police Chief TJ Hooker and his lovely wife Silvia, below.) There was a fantastic fireworks display at midnight SLT as the party-goers watched the Prim drop. The event was the last chance for people to donate to Child's Play Charity, and today it was announced that our winter fundraising totaled L$163,892! Thank you to everyone for the incredible generosity; that will buy a lot of toys for children in the hospital!
I asked a few Bay City Citizens if they had resolutions for 2017, and this is what I heard:
Aуαмє Ƙιηтѕυgι-Mσση (zombiegal): I am looking forward to working on more events to help promote Bay City to the rest of the SecondLife grid in an inclusive and welcoming environment. I am also looking forward to seeing those events help to further promote our efforts towards raising money for the Child's Play charity. In short, more events. Let's have some!
Marianne McCann: focus on fun
T. J. Hooker (ThomasHooker): I'm going to try to learn to create mesh. Of course, I said that last year too :P
Angela Galway (Angela Seale): i resolve to do my best not to kill anyone, or grief any sandboxes for 2017 ;P
Need some Bay City-related recommendations for resolutions? Get involved! Attend one of the weekly Rumbles (click here for the year in review to see what fun we had in 2016), or visit The Pen on the first Tuesday of each month for Espresso Yourself! Join the Bay City Alliance group and attend weekly meetings at the Community Center. It's better than being on TV! (Well, maybe not better than ETv, but sometimes there are balloons, or very large boats, or wolves wearing cat food cans, or...oh nevermind, just show up and see for yourself!)
