EverFestApril in Bay City always starts with a celebration of our favorite April Fool - Ever Dreamscape! This year, the celebrations lasted an entire week, starting with the Rumble on Thursday, March 30th featuring crazy vehicles and shark costumes...mostly on fire. On Friday, March 31st there was a charity bowlathon at the Fairgrounds, with all proceeds going to Child's Play. And on the anniversary of Ever's birth, April Fool's Day, a party was held at the Bay City Brewery, followed by general mayhem and a mass torching of the City. The fire department, as per usual, was nowhere to be found. (More on that later.)

Guest Column - Roc PlutonianThis month the Post welcomes Roc Plutonian, landlord of the Post building and a dear friend of Ever's, as he offers a touching tribute to our Patron Firebug:
synonyms: always, forever, eternally, until hell freezes over, until the cows come home, until mimes speak at the Pen, until Bay City is free of fire
- at any time: "nothing Ever seemed to ruin her appetite for fun"
- used in comparisons for emphasis: "After starring in a late-night Etv episode, they felt better than Ever before"
- at all times; always: "Ever the woman of action, she encouraged all residents to get involved"
- increasingly; constantly: "committing Ever larger crimes of mayhem in the City"
- used for emphasis in questions and other remarks, expressing astonishment or outrage: "who Ever heard of a shark brewing beer?"

Firehouse in Dennis for RentWith all of the mayhem in the City this past weekend, it has come to the attention of the Editor (who also happens to own the Bay City Fire Station #2 in Dennis) that due to her lack of time and attention, fire service in the City is sorely lacking. A concerned resident captured the shocking image below of a poor noob

New Postal Service in Bay CitySend your package in style with the Bay City Postal Service! Our cargo handlers will ship your package to anyone, anywhere in SL. We will ship not only by air, but by sea and land as well. Neither rain nor snow nor lag of grid can stay these messengers about their duty. (We are, however, not responsible for wet, frozen, or otherwise lost parcels…) All services are roleplay only and are opt-in. If the recipient does not wish to roleplay the delivery, we will simply pass them the package.
The boxes work just like the many postal boxes you see in First Life. You address a package and drop it in, the postal worker picks it up and delivers it. Local Bay City mail will be handled by the Bay City Post Office, and large parcels or mail going outside of Bay City will be handled by GridWide Cargo Service.
Mail can be delivered to any mailbox that has Allow Inventory Drop set to TRUE. First, you need to find one of our boxes, which are located at the following parcels:
- Bay City Heliport
- Adam's Ribs
- You Know, For Kids
- Bay City Arboretum of Rather Atypical Vegetation
- Bay City Post Office
- Bay City Police Department
- Anton Airstrip
- Lily Airstrip
- Abyss Observatory
Hold down the CTRL button and drag your item into the mailbox. Please include a notecard with the recipient’s name and the location of the delivery. The package must be transfer enabled or we cannot deliver it.
We will pick up the package at our earliest availability. We try to always deliver in character, and using realistic vehicles to do so but in some cases that is not possible. We will walk the package to the destination if we cannot use vehicles in that area, for example a roleplay region that does not allow non-residents to use vehicles.
We will place a mailbox at your location. I will need an invite to the land owning group, however, I will leave the group once the mailbox is placed.
