This is going to be an expanded version of our regular monthly visit to the hospital. They have graciously extended the cap on the number of costumers, lengthened the time we are there, and will be reserving large rooms for us on all three floors so that the children can come to us and spend time with us. There is also the potential to visit other sections of the hospital such as the Pediatric Emergency Department, and any other wards that would like us to be there. Child Life is spreading the word so we'll know closer to the date.

The plan will be to have a minimum of 3 face characters that will be reading stories from "5 Minute Star Wars Stories", one on each floor. If we have more than three, shifts can be taken, if only three we will rotate them between the floors so that the children get to see each character. We also hope that we can get a Vader, Emperor, or Kylo that is comfortable playing the part of "Darth Santa" and allowing kids to sit on their lap to tell them what they want for the holidays. Since the kids aren't allowed to move between floors "Darth Santa" will spend time on each floor. The remainder of the participants will be split up between the three floors and will walk around the halls, playing with the kids, visiting those that can't leave their room, and generally spreading cheer. There will also be an art therapy session that any and all participants can attend to help the kids as well as create artwork themselves.

We won't know until the week of roughly how many patients will be there, so this could be a very busy troop, or it could be very slow. I'll be given an update the week of with potential census numbers and we can evaluate if we have too many or need more. With it being a 5 hour window people can come and go as needed during that timeframe. The only ones that might be scheduled would be Face Characters who are reading stories, and "Darth Santa"(s).

At this time, I only have Generic Jedi approved in RL - is that acceptable for this troop?

Thanks,
Joy

Thank you.

I would like to sign up as Prahl, a “generic” Jedi - I. Have never been to an Inova Troop, but, have been wanting to participate for a while!

Thanks,
Joy

I would like to be added to the wait list for this event as a tentative attendee.

If I can go, I will appear in my OT X-Wing Pilot.
