11/20/10 IL Microsoft Store Canned Food Drive - Oakbrook

Postby badmommy » Sat Nov 20, 2010 7:46 pm

Members of the Midwest Garrison gathered at the Microsoft Store at the Oakbrook Center to draw attention to the store's canned food drive. This event was nearly cancelled but "Prof Chaos", Bob Walton TD1216, stepped out of retirement and volunteered to troop his first event in years.
When other friends and members couldn't make ChiTAG, they too showed up! Longtime costuming junkie and all around great guy, "jackkillian" Andrew Marsh TA2079 showed up with equally as cool(but a Rebel!), "golddragon1974" Rob Hamilton. And always a pleasure to have at an event, "Remo" Michael Riemma TI 1659.

Members hung around outside the store bringing to the attention of the public the canned food drive. Many people stopped to have their pictures taken. Word of their presense swept through most of the center in the 2 short hours the MWG trooped.

Thanks to all who came out ! It was a blast catching up with old friends and making new friends too!!

Wow, Trent, I've never seen that pic! In fact, I haven't seen a pic of just the Prof and I since my brother's wedding in 1998 :) Thanks :)

826, the Prof is looking forward to catching up with you again! He said it has been too long since he has picked your brain for misc. info.
