I was thinking about having Torchwood host a welcoming dinner for the new residents on Monday night.  It would give the new residents an opportunity to meet the members of Torchwood, and vice versa. 

It would also be a good opportunity to get everyone in one place so I can start assigning things like cleaning duties.  With over thirty people living in the Kashtta now, common areas will get messy very quickly if we aren't proactive about such things.

What do you think?

I don't think it's a bad idea. I think Owen may try to poison you if you insist he attend, though.

Assignation of duties is something I'd like to avoid, if at all possible. If it comes down to it we can hire a custodian; I don't want anything implying that we're going to exert authority over these peoples' lives. Something as simple as "pick up your area" might not mean much on the grand scales, but when it comes to symbolics, there doesn't seem to be a minimum threshold.

I'm just slightly concerned that he'll cause a diplomatic incident.

Hiring from among the wanderers is a good idea. It does seem like we should look into some means of getting paperwork, though as the last forger in Chicago was crucified, I'm not sure who to investigate for that or if it would be wise to do so.

Yeah. The problem with those that work for money is that they can be bought. Someone providing work for free might be out for your soul, but odds are they represent some sort of institution you can negotiate with, and if that fails, at least there's something there to investigate and get leverage with. I have some experience with re-aligning organizational goals to accommodate Torchwood, but given how unstable world economics are, I'd prefer to be as cautious as I can with our fund. Fat stacks of cash can't be our answer.

If at all possible, finding or training someone in-house to do it would be preferable. We just have to keep our eye out for a wanderer with the right talents.

Sorry. Rhetorical hyperbole.

I'll talk to Mercury about it – I think it's probably not too far-fetched.
