Hello troopers, as some of you know I live in a small town south of the cities. A youth center has opened for kids in grades 5-8 to hang out after school. They are doing a good job, but need some help to get the word out that they are here. This youth center is a non profit volunteer place, with everything they have donated. When they heard what I did and they wondered if I could do an appearance there to interact with the kids and pose for photos and you know the regular stuff. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in accompanying me on this venture? No dates have been discussed yet, I just wanted to see what interest there may be.


UPDATE - I have now heard back from the youth center and they are looking at Saturday April 12th as the date 1pm - 3pm.

I have been talking with Jenny about doing a photo shoot and a social in the evening after this troop. Who would be interested in making this a whole day of fun not just a couple of hour troop?

Great news!
I just got off the phone with the news paper and they will be running a pre-story as well as a post story on this event. They are talking about sending a reporter and photographer to the event. We should be able to get some great PR for the legion's

Hope to see many of you there.

I just met with the reporter and we will have a spread in the paper as soon as tomorrow. I also got confirmation that a reporter will be on site Saturday. I will post a link to the online version of the article once it is available. Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday, was hoping to get a Vader but its not looking good, never the less it will be a great time with a fun after troop social.

I was thinking about doing Hamburgers and hotdogs for the after troop social with people bringing a side to pass? what's everyone's thoughts on that idea?

I would like to thank everyone that made to trip down to this troop. We had a total of 13 troopers out for this event which I am so grateful for. The crowd at the youth center swelled to over 50 at one point, and it sounds like we were a huge hit. The center said they have had so many people over the last week asking about the center and a few donated money.
Here is a link to the article that will be in the paper this week. http://www.southernminn.com/the_kenyon_leader/news/article_587d41bb-e50a-5fe8-9c5e-1a93bb7b3943.html

I hope you all had as much fun as I did during the troop and at the after troop social. THANK YOU ALL.
