Spring is Here! OLG is Ready!

March 28th, 2012

Spring is upon us, and the Old Line Garrison is looking forward to coming out of hyper-sleep and invading your quadrant of the Galaxy for another great season of trooping for fun, charity, and good causes!

We had another great winter! We were honored once again this past December to participate in the Mayor’s Christmas Parade in Hampden, and we look forward to the 2012 parade.

The charitable donations really rolled-in this winter too! We helped out MIX 106.5FM and the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center with their 23rd Annual Radiothon, which brought in over $865,000 in donations. Also, the annual Maryland State Police Polar Bear Plunge team ‘Some Like It Hoth’, comprised of Old Line Garrison members, their friends and family, broke their previous year’s record by personally raising $4,612.06 for Special Olympics of Maryland, and having a ton of fun at the beach while doing it!

As a preview of events to come this Spring and Summer, here are some upcoming events where you can catch Old Line Garrison invading your planet:

We look forward to another awesome Star Wars at the Library event at the Arbutus Branch of the Baltimore County Public Library on Saturday, April 21st at 2:00pm. This event will feature crafts and activities as well as showcase books and stories from the Star Wars Universe.

May 4th every year is Star Wars Day (May the Fourth be with you!), and the next day is just as great… FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! We will be at a number of Maryland comic book shops and booksellers on Saturday, May 5th to promote literacy and good, old-fashioned Comic Book & Science Fiction fandom.

On Saturday, May 12th, the Archbishop Neale School in La Plata, MD will be hosting a fundraiser Sci-Fi/Comic Con. The event will open at 10:00am, and Imperial Recon elements have gathered intelligence suggesting a Viking presence in the area…

Sunday, May 20th will be the date of this year’s Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Walk in Frederick, MD, and OLG plans on being there to do our part. Get more details on this event at the CFF Maryland Chapter website.

And finally for this preview, we are excited to announce that we are once again planning to take Prince George’s Stadium by force on Saturday, June 23rd for the Bowie Baysox’s Annual Star Wars Night! If you’ve been in attendance for this event in years past, you’ll know that it keeps getting better every year! Get more information at the Bowie Baysox website.

We look forward to seeing you soon, and check back often for more news and announcements!
