The Ellwood City Public Library is having their Star Wars Event on Sat. Nov. 12 from 1p.m.-3p.m at their library location. The 501st Legion will be providing 12 costumed characters. They do a short program first, including a trivia contest and then will pose for pictures with the kids or adults in attendance afterwards.
Two years ago the library had them come for the library’s 100th Birthday which drew a crowd of over 100 people. The 101st Legion uses only screen accurate costumes (pictured to the right) and they are extremely good with children, also proving to be untiring in posing for pictures. Registration is appreciated but not necessary. Call the library for more information at 724-758-6458. Refreshments will be served.
The Friends of the Library have prepared a Star Wars gift basket as a raffle. It contains all 3 movies from each trilogy and an autograph from the original Darth Vader! The tickets are $1.00 a piece, 6 for $5.00, and 13 for $10.00. The raffle is a fundraiser. Tickets are on sale from now until noon on Dec. 12. The winner will be notified by phone.
