Hi Hamlet!

This weekend ROMA is having its February festival, the Lupercalia. (For those of you who don't know, ROMA is the original and oldest ancient Roman themed land in SL.) We're giving an SL spin to some ancient Roman rituals, and holding a couple social events and contests as well. Events occur all day Saturday and Sunday (20th and 21st). A full schedule can be found at our blog: http://romacitizens.blogspot.com/2010/02/lupercalia-festival-schedule.html

If anyone would like to learn more about our community and how to join us in enjoying ancient Roman culture, our main website is http://romacitizens.com/

Thanks Hamlet!
