Hillsides Visit 2017

Today, R2 returned to Hillsides Children's Group Home, where he participated with dozens of members of various Star Wars clubs, to bring happiness to kids who have had a tough childhood. Per policy with these things, no pictures with kids were allowed.

As he's done each year, R2 hid under an outdoor stairway, as the characters changed into costume and prepared for their grand entrance.

Quite a large group assembled behind the building where the characters had changed, in order to make their surprise appearance.

The kids got to meet the characters, and most of the characters signed their autograph books. The kids also got patches. Next, the Saber Guild put on their presentation, where Jedi fight Sith, and ultimately, Vader himself. The kids help use the Force to chase Vader away.

And finally, we wrapped with group photo.

It's a great event for a great cause, and I hope R2 and I are part of it again next year.
