On Sunday, February 28th, members of Alderaan Base and the New England Garrison attended the Frank Maratta Auto Show. This show has been going on for over 50 years and features all kinds of classic and modern cars, trucks, and more. Our members were on hand to help greet the guests as they wandered around the show floor and pose for pictures. It was a great time as we helped make for some interesting photos with our members in the various cars and bikes at the show!

On Sunday, February 28th, members of the New England Garrison and Alderaan Base attended a party at the Tilt Classic Arcade & Ale House. They were hosting a kick off event for Citizen Cider’s new non-alcoholic cider called “Citizen Sweet”. This was a great time and very similar to their 1st anniversary we attended, where they had face painting and the like. Our members mingled with the crowd and posed for lots of great pictures.
On Saturday, February 27th, a lone trooper with the New England Garrison attended this event at York Hospital, a community event to raise funds for their Miracles Campaign. This is a wonderful program designed to improve pediatric and maternal health in Southern Maine. The general them was a Star Wars & Magic theme to appeal to kids of all ages. We were honored to have been a part of this and hope everyone in attendance had a great time!

There was a variety of activities, crafts and displays targeting each age group for guests to enjoy. There was even a Cantina Bar (family friendly!), a trivia, contest, and a costume contest. Our members had a great time posing for pictures with the guests.
On Sunday, February 7th, members of the New England Garrison, Alderaan Base, and Wampa Clan of the Mandalorian Mercs teamed up to welcome home a young Jedi from his recent trip to Walt Disney World. Thanks to the help from our friends at the Make A Wish foundation we learned of Nolan’s journey and the three factions put aside their differences to greet Nolan as he returned from his adventure.
