Independence Day Military Ball Friday 04 July 2008 7-10 PM SL

Join us from 7 to 10 PM SL for our 2008 Independence Day Military Ball for members and guests of the U.S. Military Veterans Center in Second Life. Formal civilian attire or military dress uniform recommended.

Thank you to Navy vet Edward Pluto and his lovely Mya Shalala for opening their Moonlight Serenade Ballroom to us for this magnificent event. Ride this SLURL Limousine or catch a Landmark Limo in-world.

If you don’t have the Landmark, just go to the U.S. Military Veteran group, click on the Notices tab, and look at Archived Notices. You can sort by notice sender, title or date by clicking on the column headings. Then just click on the notice of interest to reopen it and then open the attachment, which will put the Landmark into your Inventory’s recent items tab.

Need formal civilian attire or a dress military uniform? Select U.S. Military Veteran in your groups and then open a group Instant Message to shout out to fellow members for suggestions. Two popular locations are Kilby’s and The Hangar.

Most ballrooms in Second Life do offer free gowns and tuxes…just click the Search button at the bottom of your Second Life screen and look for “Ballroom.”

Need a dance partner for the Military Ball? Again, use group IM to alert others that you are available to accompany them to the event. For example, “Any ladies (or gentlemen) in need of a dance partner for the ball? Please IM to me.” If you want to check out the profile of someone who has announced their availability in group IM, just click on their name. It will open their profile.

The Moonlight Serenade has a line dance for those who come unaccompanied, but it fills up fast.
