On Saturday, October 5th members of the 501st New England Garrison and the Rebel Legion’s Alderaan Base participated in the nation-wide event called Star Wars Reads Day, which is geared towards getting more children interested in reading. Troopers from both groups fanned out across the region to make appearances in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. At the Rhode Island event, which was held at the Barnes & Noble in Warwick, Star Wars author and Rebel Legion member Ryder Windham was present to not only talk about Star Wars with attendees but to also support the Rhode Island Blood Center with a donor collection drive held just outside. Our members are proud to take part in this event year after year and get very excited to see so many young fans there to greet them!
