As I mentioned at this past weeks community meeting, with Freda gone and Serene absent, it falls to the rest of us to pick up the slack in keeping an active community going. Ada and I are taking over the blender buddies classes. There are a number of other events that Freda used to host that have apparently gone by the wayside, and I am told that the majority of events in opensim used to happen in Kitely. I would like to return to that situation, but we all need to think about what we can do. You don't need to throw a party or hire a singer or dj. Post an event about what you are doing that interests you that you can share with the community. If you can't post events to the kitely calendar, just ask the folks who administer it for the ability to do so. If you have a region open to the public, and have an event to share with the community, odds are you will be given the ability to post events to the community calendar.
