WHAT: Shriners Hospital Visit

WHERE: Shriners Hospital-Northern California
2425 Stockton Blvd, Sacramento, CA
(916) 453-2000

WHEN: NEW TIME: Saturday, October 31st from 2 pm to 3 pm (please arrive by 1 to get ready)

COSTUMES: Formal/Canon

RESPOND BY: October 4th

Mark from the CCG has invited Endor Base to join the 501st for a hospital visit. Here's more information about the event from Mark.

The Sacramento Shriners Hospital is located on the corner of Stockton Blvd and X Street. Parking is free on the weekends. The parking garage is accessible behind the hospital through either X Street or Y Street. We will meet in the main lobby where we will be escorted to spaces where we can change. You may want to bring your own pen to sign stuff with. I can take six Rebel Legion members. Given the requests of the Shriners Hospital, this will be treated as a canon event.

As a reminder, I will have a designated photographer as we are in a hospital environment with minors and their families.

Should anyone feel ill the day before our visit, please contact Mark or Tina.

For hospital visit rules, please note below.

General Guidelines

* No elements of violence, weapons, or suggestions of physical harm / death. (Lightsabers are okay!)
* No candy, cell phones, photo cameras or video cameras (the hospital will tell us if there are any exceptions and only certain people will be allowed to do any photography or video recording)
* If you are feeling ill just before or at the hospital event, you need to let the event coordinator know ASAP.


Do's and Don'ts for interacting with the kids:

DOs:

* Stay with the guide and follow their lead. Not every child wants visitors.
* Introduce yourself.
* Smile.
* Crouch down to child's level (VERY easy for us, eh?)
* Ask general questions or questions that relate to the visit. Do you like Star Wars? Does your bear have a name? Friendly questions
* Thank a child for letting you visit.
* End with a positive note.


DON'Ts

* Do not wander off on your own.
* Do not ask patients why they are in the hospital.
* Do not say, "Get well soon".
* Do not make promises you can not keep like "I will see you soon".
* Do not talk about your own hospital experience.
* Do not make religious references (like God will heal you).
* Do not use adult or medical humor.
* Do not make assumptions about a child's age or gender - illness can drastically change the way a child grows / looks, be careful.
* Do not scold a child for their mood or behavior. Being in the hospital can be difficult and they have a reason to be in a bad mood.

Please respond to anyone's ability to attend by Sunday, October 4. Once applications are taken, I will go over the list with Shriners to see what outfits they want for their patients and families. I will post a finalized list no later than Monday, October 12.

Should anyone have any questions or comments, please contact me directly. Thanks for your time and attention.

I'm fairly certain I can go. I did one of these last year, and I must say it was one of the more rewarding things I've done.

I really want to do one of these hospital visits in Sacramento, but I'm busy Halloween Day.

Hopefully the next one if we are invited back!

I'll see if I can make it to this one. I'm dj-ing a party that night somewhere in Yuba, but haven't confirmed it just yet. I'll let you know after the SW concert.

Her ears must have been burning, 'cause she called right as I posted this.
It's a house party in Yuba & we wont be leaving till after 6pm. So, I'll say yes I can come.

Sorry!

Pam :-)

So was anyone from RL able to make it to the Hospital on Saturday? It sounds like it was a tough time with Halloween plans and people coming down with flu and colds.

Pam, I hope you are feeling better!
