Fall is here!

October 3rd, 2012

Hello, Old Line Fans!

You know, when the nights become chilly, the leaves change color and the lenses in your Stormtrooper helmet start to fog-up on the inside, it means that Fall has arrived. Adding to the excitement we get from dreaming of the season that brings us such fantastic things as apple cider, bonfires and Girl Scout Cookies, we are super-anxious to start trooping at all of the fun Fall events leading us up to the Holiday season.

There are a few great events on the way to you in October.

The next big event where you can come out and meet the troopers of the 501st Legion will be this Saturday, October 6th, when garrisons across the country help DK Publishing promote STAR WARS READS DAY! The Old Line Garrison will be at a number of area booksellers including Barnes & Noble, Pottery Barn Kids and Books-a-Million promoting the empire’s agenda of literacy, reading, books, Star Wars, imagination and FUN!

On Saturday, October 13th, we will be at the Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department (5200 Southwestern Blvd. Arbutus, MD) for Children’s Safety Day! This is an annual community educational event that offers kids fun activities and training on how to practice good  fire-safety habits. This even features fire-engine rides, 9-1-1 call training, a smoke-house simulator and more. This event runs from 11am-3pm.

We are also excited to be involved with the Howard County Autism Society’s “One Step Closer Autism Walk” on November 3rd from 9am-12pm. For more information on this event, or to find out how you can help, please visit www.howard-autism.org.

Another great library event is coming your way, when we will be at the Severna Park Branch of the Anne Arundel County Public Library for STAR WARS @ THE LIBRARY! On November 10th from 10am until 1pm, you can come out and meet the troops, participate in some fun games and activities and of course go home with some great books! The Library is at  45 W. McKinsey Rd in Severna Park, Maryland.

We are working on a great deal of Holiday Season events, including a few local Toys For Tots appearances, the Mayor’s Holiday Parade in Hampden, and many more. Stay tuned to the Old Line News Feed for more information!
