    While at WXXI's pledge drive last night, Laura told us that WXXI has been on the air for 40 years in Rochester, so they are having a big event, an Open House, on Saturday, September 30th. from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. thoughout their building with many costumed characters (like Clifford) and other organizations (Seneca Park Zoo) helping out in the celebration. She remembers the Star Trek costumes that the USS Tranquility and KAG wore for their auctions and some of their other special events (She loves her "Klingons". [face_love] ) So, Tom and I told her about the Rebellion, Rebel Legion and the 501st., and she was extremely excited about the possibility of having Star Wars characters there. We told her to check out the photo galleries on Rochester Fandom's website to see what we have done as well as the costumes; and she'll e-mail us the details as the time approaches. Neither of us remembered anything planned for that day yet, so is this something people would be interested in? D.

    Its a possibility for me. I could get there by noon maybe, after work. At least it would be a couple hours.

    EDIT (just noticed the times):
    I'll definitely still be in St. Catharines for the Grape & Wine parade.

    OH CRAP! I forgot about Grape & Wine :oops: Well maybe we can do both. I mean those of us who were going to grape & wine can still go, & for those who were't going maybe can do WXXI? Just a thought.

    I would, but Laura has not contacted me whether they really want us and with more details.
