Despite the recent string of unfortunate events, please let me assure you that Paixao is a peaceful place. Our citizens are making every accomodation possible for you, our guests. Apartments are being emptied, and soon you will be allowed to apply for them. We are making further expansions to our schools so that all of those eligible can attend.
Paixao is a land of tradition, however. It is hard to believe that we are almost upon our centennial year. Our founders did not expect much when they set foot on this island, expecting only to live in isolationist peace. But we have had our highs and lows, our periods of economic growth and bustling trade, and it is due to all this that Paixao is what it is today, and can accomplish all these things. We must never forget that.
Therefore, it is my pleasure as mayor to invite you to our 95th Annual Foundation Day Festival. Admission, food, games and entertainment are complimentary, and catering will be generously provided by the Ersesat Company. However, because of this, I must ask everyone who plans to be there to RSVP in this post, so that our caterers will know how much food to prepare.
Though most of the fair is free of charge to everyone, this year we will also be holding a paid raffle, to help raise funding for our research into offworld transportation. The winner will receive his or her choice of prizes, the nature of which will be given in more detail at the event itself.
The festivities begin at the Jogo da Crianca Fairgrounds in three days' time, and I am also planning to attend. I hope to see all of you there.
The Mayor of Paixao
