IL–Peoria/61615 –Gift Wrapping and Book Drive – Sun 12/23/12

Postby TKRoland » Wed Jan 02, 2013 2:25 am

This troop was so much fun and an amazing way to end the year. We all met in the receiving area of the Peoria Barnes and Noble to kit up.
The cafe was sectioned off to make a wrapping station for us and announcements were made on the intercoms on an infrequent basis.
This event drew a surprisingly large crowd and more troopers than I could have expected. :D
Most of us wandered around the store and out by the front doors promoting our event in the cafe and taking pictures with guests.
Over the last couple weeks while I was at the store I told guests about the event and a number of them came back to see our group.
One of the guests even came back to help wrap and may be joining Rebel Legion for future events. Everyone did an amazing job wrapping and entertaining.
Phyllis was especially entertaining to watch wrap, her Jedi wrapping skills were impressive... most impressive.
Through our group's efforts we generated $338.10 and with the donations bought 119 kids books that were donated to WTVP's holiday book drive! :thumbs:

:lol:
No problem Phyllis.
I left the country a couple days after the troop. I'm glad the Wampa Room post sufficed till I got a report up. :)
