April 16 – An Open Letter

Bookworm Hienrichs sat at her desk and pulled paper and pen to her.  After several sheets ended their lives as crumpled balls on the floor, she finally sat back and read the completed letter.

To the citizens of New Babbage:

No, no more challenges.  And this is not meant to be pushing.  I merely wish to bring up a few suggestions that perhaps–just perhaps–have been forgotten.

There are other ways to support Relay for Life than merely monetary donations.  We need people to assist us with planning a few events.  We need people willing to auction off their time and talents at the people auction, or their unique builds at the thing auction (either, or both, depending on response, to be held in June).  People can also create things to be sold in the Relay for Life vendors–a special area can be set up in the city for such vendors if there are enough.  And there are friends and family from the so-called “Real Life” who can donate through the medium of Convio.

If anyone is interested in doing such over the next few months, please contact either myself or Miss Avariel Falcon.  I thank you for your consideration, and remain–

Your servant,
Miss Bookworm Hienrichs

Bookworm finally nodded once, folded the sheet, and stuck it in an envelope.  She gave the envelope to one of the city messengers to take to the printers, with instructions for its dissemination.  ‘The rest,’ she thought abstractedly as she watched the urchin whisk around the corner, ‘is silence.’

Spread the love

    Ms. Heinrichs,

    I would be pleased to offer my time and services to the auction, to be employed as a DJ and/or cuddle pillow.

    hmmm…… don’t know what skills i have that are worthy of an auction, though maybe my flute playing is still of interest? Unique builds…. that could be fun, wonder what ideas us urchins can come up with, any ideas fellas? Not felt up to building much for previous RFL events, our building teams are ssoooooo good, but smaller stuff…. hmmmmm

    Tepic heads off to think…..

      Perhaps you and a few of the others could auction off an “Urchin for a Day” experience.  Take the winner to the urchin hangouts, teach them the urchin attitude, get into mischief… *grin*

        *raises Gil’s hand* Gilhooly is on board with Urchin for a Day!

        interesting…. Gadget could probably make a shrinking machine, he’s good at that sort of stuff, we could see some of the sights down the sewers, run over the rooftops, an the rest of it, sounds good! An if Gilhooly is in on it, we got all the day covered!

    I am up for the people auction!  Hm…I can offer to serenade (I sing) someone.

    I can also make something to auction off!

      Thank you, Ms. Forsythe!  I’ll be in touch later.
