A Special Anniversary Event?
Over the past few months we have been discussing having some sort of special anniversary event to mark the occasion this year. You may remember last year we held an event in Manhattan for our 24th anniversary in which we paired up with a monthly DWNY meet up and brought the lovely Daphne Ashbrook (Dr. Grace Holloway from the 1996 Doctor Who movie) to the event. See Happy Anniversary to Us… for further details.
We would like to something special for our 25th as well. It would be an event in the NY area, perhaps on Long Island as that is where it all began, yet still be accessible to our friends in NYC. Maybe a dinner event? Would you be interested in attending?
We would love to get some old time original members. Some of which we had lost touch with over the years. If you by chance are in contact with any of them who do not frequent our site or listen to Doctor Who: Podshock (which is celebrating its 5th anniversary) today and may not be aware of the anniversary, please point them to this article.
We understand it is difficult for people to travel to this area if you are located elsewhere, that is one of the reasons we have our regular seasonal Gallifreyan Embassy / Doctor Who: Podshock meet ups on Second Life, as those geographic barriers do not exist there. If there is enough interest we would like to do something special this year to mark our anniversary. If so, we will be looking for people to volunteer to help put it together as well. Please let me know if that is something that you may want to do as well.
Thanks to all the happy anniversary wishes received today here on our site and on Twitter and elsewhere. It is still hard to believe that the Gallifreyan Embassy is now a quarter of century old.
