MOLE DAY COMING 2nd FEBRUARY 2015

Annual Event Honors Members of Linden Department of Public Works

BAY CITY, SL (26th January, 2015) – It’s nearly that time of year again when we look for furry little shadows. You do have your shadows enabled, no? It’s not about groundhogs — it’s about the Moles of the Linden Department of Public Works!

Initially honored in 2010 by Residents of Bay City, Mole Day is set aside to show appreciation for The Moles and their many contributions to Bay City and the rest of the Second Life™ Grid.

This year’s annual Mole Day will again take place at the Bay City Fairgrounds February 2nd commencing at 5:00 p.m. SLT. The event will feature DJ GoSpeed Racer of KONA stream followed by Marky Helstein performing live at 6:00 p.m. SLT.

“Moles” are members of The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW). The LDPW is a program focused on improvements related to the experience of living on, or visiting the Linden Mainland. The LDPW organizes teams of Resident builders, artists, and scripters (the Moles!) to create new content on Linden Lab’s behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents have the last name “Mole.”

Moles essentially build all of the grid’s infrastructure: the public roads and railways, items in our coastal waterways and protected lands, and even larger scale projects like the Linden Homes regions, premium content and experiences, and much more.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.

For more information, or to participate in the event, please contact Marianne McCann.

Here are some historical snapshots from previous Mole Day events in Second Life and every year it just gets better. Everyone is welcome to attend the annual event and please spread the word about Mole Day 2015 in Second Life. :D

Also, why not toss a few bones in the ol tip jar, too, or buy a fresh cuppa? It helps keep the lights on.
