Plainfield Public Library
15025 S. Illinois St
Planfield, IL 60544

Time: 2pm - 4pm

Once the troop in the Joliet B n N is over at 12:30, I'll be grabbing a bite to eat and will be at the Library around 1:30 pm

We have been asked to participate in the Plainfield Public Library's Star Wars Reads Day. The contact at the library, Veronica, was very excited to have our participation for this event and will have several stations set up in the library for the children to participate in. There will be a secure area with a restroom for us to change in. I explained to her that we currently have several events that day, and that I maybe the only one. She was excited to have 1, and would love anyone else who could make it.

Email from contact : Hi,
Thanks so much for calling this morning. We would love to have any participation from the local 501st that is available. Our event is October 6 from 2-4 p.m. Not knowing exactly what the attendance will be, our event is going to be several different stations throughout the lower level. Currently, we're planning on having a craft, light saber limbo, guessing games, drawings and trivia. There will also be a scavenger hunt of sorts. We have six life size cardboard cut outs of various Star Wars characters that we plan on displaying throughout the library. Participants who find all of them will then get a prize. We will also have a meet and greet with Darth Vader as well.

I look forward to working with you!
Veronica

The contact's husband, who is not a 501st member, but does have a high quality Vader costume will be there as well ( they didn't think they were going to get any garrison members, and asked her husband to come in costume)

With this one being a little latter in the day, would love to have anyone swing by after an earlier event.

Also EVC'ing an earlier event in Joliet at the Barnes and Noble book store from 10:30am to 12:30pm http://www.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=41909

I cheated and just copied and pasted my event here from MWG boards...hope thats legal Mr. Green

Thanks for signing up Mr. Green

anyone know what costumes you'll be in? the contact just asked once i told her it looked like we would have a few more. Since i thought i'd be hitting these solo, I'll be rocking the TK.
I think she just wants to know so she can do some signage or figure out placement

Thanks again everyone

Talked with the contact again today, she is excited we will have more people. we will have a choice of 2 different rooms to use as our storage/changing room, and said they have a water cooler as well as could provide water/gatorade. Do any of you guys know what costumes you'll be wearing as she wants to know what/who will represented for the event. Thanks again!

I see 2 events I could do this day---possibly.
I'm going to attempt to get to the Barnes & Noble in Joliet as it is closest to me.

I will see whether I can get to the Plainfield Library afterwards.

Thanks. I want to troop more. It's nice to know Jedi are being asked to come. Smile
I'm prepared to come to both---so long as I don't have an emergency with my mom.

Another milestone for Nar Shaddaa Base....

all participants at both the Plainfield Library (except for the Darth Vader who is currently not a 501st member)
AND
the Braidwood Library were all members of Nar Shaddaa Base....

that is amazing!

At the Plainfield Library Artoo had out his collection bucket for MSABC...there was $13.00 in there....I rounded off to $15.00

AND

Pat Phinney gave me $20.00 toward MSABC...

so I added $35.00 to our MSABC effort this morning putting the donation on my credit card.

Suffice it to say my day was more than a little hairy since my Jeep's front end decided to self destruct....
but...
with some judicious driving...I made it home.....
obviously...
if I am to head to Milwaukee on the 20th for Discovery World...the Jeep will need immediate attention..

Wink

I had a great time yesterday.....and look forward to the next...

Artoo is giddy as he got to spend all day with Princess Leia...


Photos from both Library events are in one album here:

and....

our future NSB member is the gentleman in this photo...
he and his wife talked to me at length about Jedi costumes and getting pieces together because he would like to be a full member and come out and troop with us...



Very Happy
