If time and money were no issue, what would your dream costume be?

How has being a member affected your life?
I’ve met some fantastic people through the Legion and am grateful for all the friends I have met through my experience!
What would be your dream event to participate in?
Any Make-A-Wish event, hands-down, those are the more rewarding events.
What has been your favorite event to participate in?
I don’t have one, but Star Wars Celebrations 5 & 6 come to mind, as does the local Holiday parade called “Parade of Lights” in Athens, Georgia. The parade takes place at night in early December. The streets are lined with Christmas lights and all the floats are decorated for the holiday. The crowds are always enthusiastic and cheer us on through the parade.
Do you volunteer with other organizations?
