San Jorge Childrens Hospital – Puerto Rico Base

On Friday August 16 2013 The Rebel Legion Puerto Rico Base was invited to visit the Oncology unit of the San Jorge Children’s Hospital in San Juan. This month the hospital had several Back To School activities so we prepared a scrapbook workshop for the kids, so they could place their photos memories of our visit on that page worked by them… RL Members at the event: 1-Angel (Ravenapprentice) – BCO 2-David (D. Shadows) – BMO 3-Julissa (Tanochi) 4-Sean (Amazing Kaiju) 5-Charles (Charls) 6-Geenah (GiGiKilgannon) 7-Delirys (Daina7X) 8-Maria (mjudith) The workshop extended to around 2 hours, and was followed by a couple of visits to the patients that couldn’t leave their room to enjoy the workshop… Another great and moving troop for our base, being able to give something back to the community and to the kids in need is what really makes us: The Good Guys!

Joliet Library – 2013

Original report by: Phyllis Schulte, Nar Shaddaa Base On June 1, 2013 Nar Shaddaa Base was on hand along with members of Dantooine Base and Mos Espa Base for the 4th Annual Joliet Library Star Wars Day. In addition to the Rebel Legion, there were members from the 501st Legion, Mandolorian Mercs, The Jedi Assembly and the R2 Builders. In all, around 80 costumed people were on hand at the two venues for this event. The Empire occupied the Joliet Public Library and the Joliet Historical Society was home to the Rebel Base. We also had artists Dave Dorman, Mikey Babinski, Janine Jender, Steve Palanica and Jim Tampa. And if that wasn’t enough for you… Honorary Member Orli Shoshan (pictured at right) was also appearing! Our members spent the day taking photos with lines of kids, manning the Rebel Base displays, inducting artist Mikey Babinski as an Honorary Member, and helping run a Star Wars Academy (a Clone Bootcamp game for kids).

Walk for Autism – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Original report by: Danielle Volkar, Echo Base Though there was a chance of rain in the forecast, the skies remained sunny and clear. A perfect day for a perfect troop between the Mandolorian Mercs and the Rebel Legion. To troop at Heinz Field for the Autism walk was a double treat. This was again another first for Echo Base to attend. Jason Vey, Jim Burns, Joshua Murphy, David Volkar, Ryan Murphy and I stood tall to represent the Echo Base. After suiting up, we exited the Fed Ex Great Hall and immediately were greeted by parents, children and whole Autism Teams. Smiles, hand shakes, hugs, cheers and happiness carpeted our journey this day. We had the chance to meet and speak with a lot of organizations regarding autism and providing them with information on the Rebel Legion for their events. One of the groups had a touch sensory section that contained bowls filled with various items such as, feathers, cotton balls, sand, water, beads in water etc… The children really enjoyed it. My personal favorite moment happened when we approached a young boy, his parents were excited to see us however he was not. His father said, “look Billy, Jedi”, to which Billy replied, “No, I hate you all. I hate you all”. My only response to him was, “Yes, Anakin, we know”. And we continued moving into the crowd. Entertainers from near and far joined this event, from the Eat N Park Cookie to the Nittany Lion. According to the Post Gazette, attendance for the walk was roughly 12,000 people and the amount raised was over $700,000. Bravo Pittsburgh!!! [Editors note – there are rumors of a video of our member’s line dancing, as soon as that is discovered it will be added here!] The Staff thanked us very much for participating and commented on how much they loved seeing us and how the children were so very excited and happy to see us. At one point it became very hot and we had to take a 30 minute break to cool down, and were told that we had little ones waiting to see us, so back out we went, with smiles. I would personally like to thank Ryan Murphy for being such a wonderful person and for going above and beyond on this day. He became slightly ill with the heat and recovered to continue trooping with us and taking photos with dozens of cameras which seemed to materialize out of thin air. Ryan, it is because of people like you who are tireless in their efforts that keep people like me going. I do believe you...
