    Here is a local event that might be of interest to TFN visitors. The 501st and Rebel Legion of Michigan, along with the FanForce group, R2-Detroit, have decorated an all Revenge of the Sith Christmas Tree for the Festival of Trees in Novi, Michigan. We will have costumers there both weekends and some weekdays.

    This is the second year, we have decorated a tree. Last year we took 3rd place with our tree raising $2000 for Children's Hospital (was seen in SW Insider). At the Festival Gala last year, the Stormtroopers played on stage with the live band.
