    Hello all.

    I'm going to try something new this edition of the Mid-Rim Tribune, the Headline Edition. Bascialy what I mean by this is I will post all the big news from the MidWest FanForce chapters and leave the individual breakdown of events for either January or a later December edition.

    Depending on response, this may be something I adpot in the future or I may just save it for months where DRL really deals me a bad one. (Twas finals this time blech).

    So, that being said, I should have something up tomorrow morning. Got a bit of news now, but I haven't had a chance to make it look pretty yet.

    Thanks!! Check back soon.

    Family in the 501st is in need of help
    As many of you you might have heard, Katie (the daughter of the 501st founder) has been diagnosed with a brain tumor on her brain stem. Many garrisons and FanForces are rallying together to help support the family in any way they can. In the MidWest, [link=]Ohio Garrison[/link] has been raising funds for this little girl.

    If you'd like to help out head to the [link=]501st HQ[/link] or the [link=]Heart of an Empire[/link] sites. Her family would be thankful for donations and words of encourgement.
