Philomena Merchants and the AGS Hunt

I have always said that Philomena has the finest merchants on the grid.   Not only are they skillful in their creations but they are fun loving and generous with their time for town/sale events. So I would like to take this opportunity to showcase what they have contributed to  the Antique Grid Show hunt. The hunt ends on May 23rd so there is still time to grab the goodies…but not much time….get them while you can and support your Philomena Merchants !

Introducing Philomena’s New Owners

Howdy neighbors!

Earlier today, I announced the closing of Philomena. I was excited to find there was interest in continuing the town’s vision when approached by Blake Panache and Selena Anansai with their interest in taking taking Philomena into its future.  Both of these individuals have been members of our community and assisted in building homes in the town.  They know the town and the people well.  They are really great candidates for moving the town forward with an understanding of what makes it work and how the people of the town are passionate about where they live, work, and play.

Please join me in welcoming the Town of Philomena’s new owners!

The transition of Philomena will take the next few weeks with the projected date of May 31. Please do be patient as they work hard to transition the town.

Pleas read the document found at the link provided here for the details.  Please keep in mind this was not an easy decision, but one that must be made.

Thank you to all who have helped to shape and make the town a wonderful place on the grid with your energy and creativity.

Antique Grid Show Starts!

Tha Antique Grid Show Spring 10L hunt runs May 9-23.  Ms. Saraphen Calliope has worked tirelessly to organize and promote this wonderful antique-themed event and resurrect it from my pile of forgotten ashes since taking over as mayor of Philomena.

AGS, as we fondly refer to it, passes through the fair town of Philomena for multiple stops and at the out of town locations of several of our town’s merchants.  For further details, please visit the Antique Grid Show blog.  You can also join the in-world group.  Just search up “Antique Grid Show”.

Happy Hunting!

Huckleberry Finn Book Discussions

Ms. zaida Gearbox is picking up with the library’s weekly book discussions.  Ms. Patti Toolips, our town librarian, has been snatched to the RL, but she is still around and about; she is planning a monthly book meeting as well.

The book discussions will occur in the Philomena Library at 3PM to discuss Chapters 1-6.  The book of choice is Mark Twain’s The Adventures Huckleberry Finn.  As Ms. Gearbox points out, “he’s the scampiest of scamps.”  Therefore, it is no surprise our very of little scamp is facilitating this discussion!

You can access the book in online print form here, or listen to it here.
