IL - Braidwood - Fossil Ridge Public Library Saturday 9/10

Post by Vadersblade »

Members of the Midwest Garrison and Nar Shaddaa base invaded the Fossil Ridge Public Library in Braidwood, Illinois yesterday for their first annual "Star Wars Day". Our contact at the library, Vicki, had been going out to schools doing some promoting for weeks leading up to the event. Almost 100 children and family members came out to meet the characters, take pictures, get autographs, play trivia, and enjoy some Jabba Juice and Wookie Cookies! The library made a donation in our name to Make-A-Wish!

Thanks to all the troopers that came out:

SL- 4913 Thomas Turner - X-Wing Pilot
TI-4838 Janine Jender - Princess Leia
TB-7596 Vince Baena - Biker Scout
TK-8148 Matt McDonald - Stormtrooper
TK-9039 Dan Moriarty - Commander Deviss
TD-8310 Robert Hamilton - Boba Fett

Here's a few pictures courtesy of Dan's daughter:

After using hairspray, Tide pen, rubbing alcohol, bleach, and ammonia.... The permanent marker on my WHITE dress is still there... Ughhh.... I also tried to use a bit of white fabric paint, and it looks like poop. I'm about to the point of trying to just cut it out!! Lol. Here are just the few pics I have. Sorry I don't have many.

The group shot!!

Woot...

Janine..
I have some stuff called "goof off" that really works some miracles too...
course....now what is left of the stain is probably really "set in"...
I will try to remember to bring the goof off on Thursday night...
