Summary write up:

It truely was a "Star Wars Extravaganza"
In 2003 members of the Midwest Garrison and friends participated in our Star Wars costumes to add fun and atmosphere to the 1st event. The Glenview Library has such a great response they asked our members back for a second time.

Star Wars Extravaganza

Are you ready for some intergalactic fun?

The Midwest Garrison of the 501st Legion transports the Library into a galaxy far, far away. Shake hands with Stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters, bring your camera for a photo with Darth Vader!
Games and activities - dress up as your favorite character! Lots of fun for the whole family!

There were so many children there waiting to see us.
3 SOLID hours of kids.
Batteries down to below "E" That was the most autographs I ever signed.
There must have been 500 kids there throughout the afternoon. -- Kathy
