"The Shelter" Leaders Speak On The Closing
Yesterday, the Newser reported on The Shelter, a newcomer hangout that assisted those new to Second Life, announcing that it was closing after sixteen years as an active place and group. Earlier today, we were given the following message.

As I'm sure you will have heard by now The Shelter will be closing it's doors as of Sunday 30th August 2020 8 PM SLT,
The reasons for this are numerous and too lengthy for this note, but it is not all bad news as The Shelter building will be Archived by the Lindens and will remain in world for as long as SecondLife is around.
I know a great many of you have considered The Shelter home and I am sorry to all of you, I hope you will continue to enjoy you SecondLife's
The main Shelter Group will remain in place but no new members will be admitted the Infra group will be closed down and all members removed
The final Events will be:
Saturday 29th 1 PM Theme Dance
7 PM Pool Party
Sunday 30th 1 PM Voice Sunday
7 PM Formal Dance
The theme Dances will both have Double Prize Money for their final outing and Wacoede will be DJ'ing the final Pool Party as he was the first DJ for the pool Party
To all the Vendors of the Shelter you have until the 30th to come pick up your items or they will be returned as a coalesced object
To all the Tier Donors feel free to remove your tier contributions but as I said above all members will be removed from the infra group on the 30th

The Newser wishes the volunteers of "The Shelter," and the people they've been helping out, the best of luck.
