IL-Advocate Hope Children's Hospital visit 10/30

Postby PQ Higgins » Sat Oct 31, 2009 10:49 pm

On the day before Halloween a few members of the Midwest Garrison made the trek once again to Advocate Hope for our second visit there, this time they had a Halloween party going on... what better time for a visit from the 501st than this!

The majority of the visit was spent in a room where they were having the party for the patients well enough to attend. It was a bit crowded, but Cheryl decided to venture into the crowd a bit and mingle with the kids (darned Biker Scouts... being able to sit, kneel, etc... :) ) Vader did a little mingling of his own, and as always his booming voice (and Pat's knack for being in character yet adding his own flavor) brought many a smile to the kid's faces.



After some time the troops did their best to go room to room, but surprisingly, there weren't a whole lot of kids to see (never a bad thing when visiting a hospital). We did manage to find a few kids that were happy and overwhelmed to see us...

All in all it was another successful troop, and I know we are all looking forward to the next time we get to visit here.

In attendance were:
Pat Engle- SL-6312 (Vader)
Cheryl Whitaker- TB-3127 (Biker Scout)
Rob Miller- TB-7230 (Biker Scout)
Patrick Higgins- TX-3697 (photog/support)

Thanks to everyone who made it out to this!
