    What: Buffalo Zoo Appearance/Grandparents Day/Fundraising for Arctic Exhibit
    When: Sunday September 8
    Time: Arrival 10:30 Appearance 11-2
    Where: Buffalo Zoo

    The zoo representative got back to me today with our offer for helping raise awareness and a little money for the Arctic Exhibit that will house the polar bears. He suggested we appear on Grandparents Day at the zoo as there will be a lot of publicity for the day already planned.

    This is in the very early stages of planning, but we have been asked to pose for pictures and request donations for pictures. All money raised will be turned over to the zoo after the event.

    There is preliminary talk of ideas for certain characters, but I advised to hold off until we see what costumes will be available.

    We have been asked to appear in costume for this event. We may have a small table with basic club information, but I won't be able to confirm until I speak with the zoo and confirm our appearance. They are requesting our costumes, so there may be a limit as to the number of non-costumed support we can bring.

    Please let me know if you are available so I can confirm an appearance by early next week (August 19)

    UGGH!!! It's opening day and AJ, his parents, and my sitter have plans, leaving me without a sitter so I may participate. So I am, unfortunately, a no.

    I'm available, unfortunately I don't know if my Endor Rebel Soldier costume will be ready in time. If there is interest I could redouble my efforts...

    I should be available. If I finally get my butt working on finishing my guard helmet, I'll do the guard, otherwise put me down for Sith.
