I just wanted to give a BIG thank you to Susan for making the drive to come help us out. The con was a huge sucess. We were expecting 50 and ended up with a crowd of 250! We also raised 106 dollars for MAW! The library staff said that they would love to do this event again next year because everyone had a lot of fun. So thanks agian susan for your rebel support!

~*Mission Report*~



On July 25th the Force was strong with Wilkes County as the Public Library allowed me to host their first Convention in coordination with the Library’s Summer Reading Program! The library staff was expecting an attendance of around 50 but we ended up with an estimated 250! The library staff announced that it was their most attended event of the summer and wishes to start making plans to host the event again next year! In addition to shattering our attendance expectations the con featured a charity drawing for Make-A-Wish that brought in an impressive $106 dollars! The con also had the support of Kohl’s A-Team witch added an additional 500 dollar donation to the charity making our grand total $606!



The con featured fun panels and events as well as a variety of special guests and activities for all age groups. Panels included topics like Harry Potter, costuming, and Podcasting. In addition to activities like trading card game tables, arts and crafts table, a medieval weapons display, a film exhibition, zombie makeovers, “Dance, Dance Revolution”, and even a bake-off the hit of the show seemed to be our Star Wars and Star Trek characters from the 501st, Rebel Legion, Mando Mercs, Star Trek Independent Fleet, and Klingon Assault Group!



After the event I am pleased to report that everyone who has spoken to me about the event said that they had a fantastic time and have already been asking who will be coming next year. A very special thank you to all who came out to bring the power of the Force to the Wilkes County Public Library…
