    Hi everyone...I'm planning a celebration event again this year and shooting for Sat. May 24/08 from 12:30pm to 5:00pm...its on a weekend so I hope more of you can attend.
    Roy Mitchell from 501st have been notified and are planning to attend.
    The plan is to make it bigger than last year and I'm still at the planning stages and have mentioned it to Jason Vader. If anyone has any ideas please contact me or if anyone wants to help LMK yodascorch@cogeco.ca.
    There will be prizes and free draws....the showing of the ESB movie, FX lightsaber duel demo, photo sessions, maybe local artists to show off thier Star Wars artwork etc. I will have some tables set up and have vendors sale some of there Star Wars toys ( just a few like three or four).
    There will be no addmission...only donations being accepted for Help A Child Smile venders will pay $25/table with all proceeds going to charity. Its going to be in Welland again..Welland City Hall. This Event will alo be part of the 150th Anniversary for Welland and schedule Events.

    sounds great. I am definately wanting to go. Will be there with the 501st as long as nothing comes up with my girls, and as long as I have someone to watch them!

    I didn't even know this thread was here. It's too far in advance to say for sure, but if I can make it, I will.

    I just wanted to let you all know I will be having some awesome Artwork on Display and even a chance to WIN..

    Artist Displays (donations and Artwork to be raffled)

    I will be working on something to but in no way compare to these guys above...but it will be fun and for a great cause "Help A Child Smile".

    Here is a little something that I would like to share.

    A man never stands so tall as when he stoops to Help A Child....(Abraham Lincoln)

    Little Child with no Hair
    How Often have you thought
    That this cancer
    Was not fair?

    Those little games unfinished
    The missed cartoons;
    Your restless nights,
    All somehow betrayed you.

    When you raised your hairless head,
    And your big eyes questioned me,
    My tears went away, because I could read
    In your soul that you still loved me.

    Little child so very ill,
    You've tasted the fruit of life,
    You are following its long hollow path,
    But believe me, you are the key to wisdom.

    You have taught me
    To take life one day at a time,
    To love at its fullest,
    And to hope forever.

    How do I take away your fears?
    how do I ease your pain?
    How does life go back to normal?
    How do I dry your tears?

    My beautiful little child,
    Thoughout this lengthy illness,
    I've always admired your strenght,
    And today, I can promise you:

    That mommy and daddy
    Will dry away those tears,
    And make you smile and laugh again.


    thanks to all
    Rob
