[Off the Record: 8/5-8/26]
→ Notably, Monday morning brings no official statement from Town Hall about the strange persons attending the street party celebrating the performance of Spamalot. When asked, officials state that the costumed figures were surely performers paid to enhance the street party experience, and nothing further is done regarding the incident, despite countless appearances on socials about strange encounters at the party and throughout the town following the play. Though, peculiarly, the Playbills and vintage articles are missing from the rec center lobby come morning.
→ In an effort to restore normalcy, Town Hall offers free tickets to the town's annual Movies in the Park. Scheduled nightly August 9-15, the movies showing will be romantic classics, with Sleepless in Seattle, Casablanca, Titanic, and An Affair to Remember scheduled to be shown. The small park near the haunted pond is the location for the films, and viewers are encouraged to bring blankets and refreshments for themselves.
→ Lastly, as per usual, rumors abound in Repose. An elderly water aerobics attendee claims he saw an honest to goodness mermaid's tail splashing in the rec center pool earlier in the week, the local high school math teacher has gone missing after supposedly solving the Hodge conjecture during a lecture on Friday, and a teen claims to have spent an entire evening playing a nonexistent game of Polybius at the local arcade.
