    Thanks to VaderDave for the info on an upcoming event.

    KidsFest!

    Where:

    Iowa State Fairgrounds Varied Industries Building, Des Moines, IA

    When:

    March 8, 2009 from 10am to 4pm

    Why:

    BIG fundraiser for the Children & Families of Iowa. You can find out more about who they are and what they do at their site:

    http://www.cfiowa.org/default.asp?m=9

    Details:

    We have been specifically asked to attend on Sunday at this event in order to help draw a larger crowd in on that day. It seems that attendance drops on Sunday.

    This will be a standard meet and greet/photo op. It is possible we may have a table to put up some pamphlets and other items.

    Afterwards, we will be having Dinner for any who wish to attend.

    This is going to be a great opportunity to let the Des Moines Area know we are here and active.

    This event usually gets covered by the local TV stations so needless to say, this is a big fish to land.

    If you want to attend in costume please check out the post over at the Rebel Legion Central Base forums so we can keep Dave updated on who can come.

    Doug and I might be able to pop by for a bit, I'll talk to him. No clue what costumes we'll wear, probably a Han and a Leia.

    We had a very good turn out for the event. The kids loved getting their photos taken with Vader, Leia and the Stormtrooper.
