Upcoming Tanabata Festival: Help Wanted

To all Blaze of Glory personnel,

Coming up on July 7th, by Dimensional Standard Calendar reckoning, is a festival called Tanabata, one popular in my homeland, which celebrates the union of the stars Altair and Vega from the vantage point of Earth's skies. It is a primarily summer festival which involves carnival games, snack booths, and small fireworks. Given the lack of distinctive religious context, it is a holiday which is open to celebration by any who care to join in.

There will be a small festival commemorating this holiday, to be held in Gatekeeper's Hangar C, courtesy of the Blaze of Glory, and open to the entirety of Gatekeeper. Assistance will be needed with building appropriate festival booths out of wood, and volunteers will be needed to staff them on the day of the holiday. If anyone is interested in participating in such matters, please do not hesitate to post a reply, or contact me for further details.

I look forward to hearing your responses.

-Seiya Sumeragi

Vivio and I would be delighted to help you prepare for Tanabata! I'd love to make a booth with traditional japanese treats, and we'd both be able to help you build the booths.

Awesome.. didn't think I'd be going to a Tanabata festival in the middle of space on a multidimentional station. I'll definitely help out, and we'll somehow need to procure a big bamboo from somewhere... I suggest an organizational meeting once we get a headcount.

Since fireworks might be a problem, I can see about setting up a temporary holographic projector, so we can at least get something close. I lived in Japan for a few years, and tanabata was always fun; you can count me in if you need a hand.

Ooooh, I would be happy to help with the preparations, Miss Seiya. I was a little homesick just thinking about missing it this year after being displaced and whatnot. I wouldn't mind at all helping with the goldfish stand since that's my favorite carnival game every year. Please call me if you need any further assistance. ^.^

It is quite nice to see so many immediate volunteers. As Arisu-san suggested, let us hold a group meeting today to clarify roles and responsibilities, as well as further festival details. The meeting will be in the Briefing Room, at [insert time here].

Miss Sumeragi,

I believe that Major Jim already spoke to you about having a barbeque/low country boil for the festival for me, but I'd like to talk about it with you in person at tonight's meeting. Looking forward to it!

Everyone,

Construction begins today on booths and games. To avoid taking up unnecessary hangar space, we will be working in Hangar C itself. I look forward to seeing all of you there.
