Comments: Purim is a Jewish Religious Holiday that celebrates an event in our history. It combines a religious service with costumed silliness. This year we have decided to use the theme of Star Wars for our service. There are many parallels between the Star Wars story and the event we celebrate that night. 'Yoda" means 'knowledge" in Hebrew.
Referred by: Discovery World advertising of the October 2012 event

I couldn't resist finding out more about this event request and coordinating it.
This should be a lot of fun. They read the book of Ester
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Book_of_Esther
at this service and have skits and walk-on's in costume to make the event come to life.
Songs, gags, jokes, and mischief are encouraged and they want us to participate in a
secret final skit that will bring us in for the final Star Wars "Ta DA" at the end of their evening.
Then we get to have a meet and greet and desert buffet. Yummm!

They will be making a donation to the Make a Wish Foundation for our appearance!

I did ask about Blasters, as you can understand we will not be allowed to bring blasters along on this troop.
So come on who's with me?

The latest scoop is that we are not required to make our actual appearance until about
8:30 pm. They are going to do some kind of skit that involves Star Wars (Good vs. Evil or ?)
that is when they want us to walk out, surprise everyone with our Grandness and meet and greet.
We could make a run to dinner then show up at this event.
If anyone is interested???

Same date, same Dare!
If any other Rebels come to either of our events this Saturday I'll wear my Y-wing. Noone at the parties will know who or what I am but hey, most of the time I'm Darth Vader in my Tie pilot costume so... Razz

Well, we didn't get out of the 1st page but had a great turnout of troopers.
This event was clearly a first, when we walked out at the end of their service everyone was stunned at first, then
they decided it was time to eat dessert and made their way into the hall to get in line and chow down.
The kids were a bit rowdy while their parents ate and socialized but then they came around and took a bunch of pics.
Surprisingly, I've already received a link to some photos!

They will be making a donation to the MAW foundation for our visit.

Yeah, I would have been happy to don my Y-wing but Alan showed up unannounced. It was nice to have a Jedi aboard. The kids were a little wild and crazy. I witnessed one light saber battle that almost took an eye out.
Alas, that is what the Old Testament was all about anyhow.
Confused
