Il-Chicago/60660 Misericordia Check Presentation 8-15-12 2PM

Postby gazmosis » Thu Aug 16, 2012 8:44 am

What a day!! Joe Orlando and I arrived at Misericordia for our Two O'clock meeting with the head administrators. After suiting up, we moved into the main foyer and were met with excited gasps, hugs, and applause. Many of the residents were very excited to see us and one resident told us he was going to make another Star Wars movie and wanted us to star in it with him!
The head "Sister" was called to the front to meet us. We introduced ourselves by name and trooper ID. After a brief presentation and descrpition of our group and the event we worked at, the check was presented. The administration opened the envelope and jaws dropped. The "sister's" main Manager told us that they expected around $200-$300. But the check amount was a total shock.
The residents were sweet and very excited to meet us. We ventured upstairs to meet a few more and after many pictures, our visit came to an end.
There could not have been enough thanks from the Administration and my good friend who's brother Michael resides there. We were told that the actions and efforts of the Midwest Garrison had restored their faith in humanity. There will be ayearly event planned for Misericordia and their family carnival next year on the second Sunday in September. Thousands of people attend and the MWG has been asked to attend!!! Details will be posted soon! A huge thank you to Joe Orlando for donating the hlmet that made this heartlifting experience possible. To all the other members of the MWG that busted their butts at the event of sacrificed personnal time making banners and printing tickets or just being shot at, Misericordia thanks you a thousand times over!

Troopers in attendance: TD 6074 Joe Orlando

I posted this story to the MWG Front Page last night, and all of Steve's pictures have been uploaded to the garrison archive. (Thanks for doing that, Steve!)
