IL-Downers Grove/60516 - Mason's B-Day Party - SAT 4/13/13

Mason's Birthday party
Downers Grove, IL

We were asked to help celebrate Mason's 7th birthday. His family had planned a Star Wars themed party for him and some friends. Mason and his family had seen us at the Darien Walk for Life Event, last year. Mason made several trips over to us to get photos. They were at the event in memoriam of Mason's mother who lost her battle with Leukemia. Since I was one of the Stormtroopers at the event, and Mason's favorite characters are Stormtroopers I wasnt going to let him down.
I arrived at the home and was let into the garage by Mason's Dad while the boys were occupied. I suited up there, and got ready to meet the boys. The boys were told there was a suprise and had them facing the other way with eyes closed. I came in from the garage and was standing right behind them as they turned around :mrgreen: . there were some OOOs and Ahhhs, as well as a couple boys screaming to the other end of the room :twisted: . I posed for pictures with the boys and fielded several questions about my boss Vader and my blaster. I also had to inform them that stormtroopers were people, wearing armor, as one insistent boy kept peeking up under my helmet to inform the others that i had a beard, LOL.
After everyone had a photo, and one of my trading cards, i made my get away. I was stopped as i hit the blast doors, and given a black balloon to hand deliver to Lord Vader :mrgreen: . I suited back down in the garage, and went out before the boys could see me.

Attendee:
Steve M, 7345, TK

Hours: 1 trooper x 1 hour = 1 hour trooped

The family has said they will make donation, however I have not been told yet. Once i get the info, i will post :thumbs:

I'm really glad someone went to this one. I felt guilty that I didn't have a TK or Vader when I read the request for it. :(
