“Thank you, Agatha, for that extensive dissertation on…” Chairman Pinkerton looked down at his notes to remind him of the official title,” the ‘Virtues of Military Formations and their Effects on Archeological Treasures in Medieval European Nations’.” Agatha smugly accepted the unenthusiastic applause as she stepped off the platform of the great hall in Renowned Explorers: International Society headquarters. “Ahem. Now, on to our next topic. Pedrinho Pinheiro would like to make an invitation.” Pinkerton stepped aside as the Brazilian man rushed forward quickly onto the stage, followed by Bia Hekaton.
“Hey, how’s everybody doing?” Pedrinho called to the crowd of explorers, helping to wake them from their half-slumber. “I’d like to invite everyone to a new annual celebration. And what better way to do that, than with a PARTY!” Pedrinho reached behind his back to produce maracas and began shaking them with a broad smile.
“Bia and I were talking, and we think we should celebrate our diversity and do it in a way that promotes peace, friendship, and competition in the spirit of ancient traditions long ago. I’d like to invite one other explorer on an adventure with us as we tour the world. We plan to collect as much goodwill and gold as we can. Who’s with me?”
