On November 6th, five troopers from the New England Garrison ventured down to the BJ’s Wholesale Club in Franklin, MA to help promote reading, a few different Star Wars books, and the unofficial beginning to the holiday shopping season. DK books, in conjunction with BJ’s Wholesale Club, set up a table near the entrance of the store to showcase some of their Star Wars books and toys for sale in the club. Darth Vader, flanked by a Stormtrooper, a Biker Scout, an Imperial Officer, and a Rebel Pilot from the NEG’s sister group, Alderaan Base, were on hand to pose for pictures, and sign autograph books. BJ’s also arranged with the good folks at Hewlett Packard printers to have a HP staff member on hand to take pictures, then print them right away at their Photo Kiosk. There were multiple raffles going on for Star Wars books, as well as plenty of give-away prizes from BJ’s and DK publishing. A big thanks goes out to Chip, for being a great wrangler / garrison photographer, as well as the great people at BJ’s Wholesale Club, DK Publishing, and Hewlett Packard for making this event a success!
