IL-Winnetka/60093 - Library Star Wars Day - SAT 4/21/12

Postby beans » Sun May 06, 2012 10:38 pm

Imperial backup was requested for Winnetka Library's "Star Wars Saturday" event. Troops arrived at two and were ready to deploy by 2:30. The kids who attended made cantina cookies, yoda and artoo popsicle stick puppets, and construction paper lightsabers. There was a seperate room to meet and take pictures with the members of the Midwest Garrison. About halfway through the event, the library rounded up the kids for Story Time with the Stormtrooper! TK-4034 performed rousing renditions of "The Pigeon Finds a Hotdog" and "What Will Fat Cat Sit On?" Overall it was a great troop, and the library staff was fantastic providing a great changing room for us with snacks and water. The day ended with a nice dinner at Little Ricky's. Thanks to all the troopers who attended!!

Midwest Garrison Troopers:
- Whinter/3127 - Biker Scout
- TK3446 - Imperial Gunner
- TK9039 - Tusken (+ Jawa + Photographer)
- TK1819- TIE Pilot
- Gazmosis/4034 - Stormtrooper
- Beans/4541 - Stormtrooper
Total trooping time: 2 hours.

We received the following from the Winnetka library:
Thank you all so much for coming! You made it such a fantastic event! We have had lots of compliments about how great your group was. We would love to do another Star wars event in the future. We haven’t talked dates yet but we will keep you posted.

And we've already received a request from the sister branch in Northbrook who would like to do a similar event later this year.

The Winnetka Patch posted several pictures on their website:
