Oct. 31 – Hemby Children’s Hospital Visit (Charlotte, NC)

If it’s October then it must be time for the Carolina Garrison and Blue Ridge Base’s bi-annual visit to Hemby Children’s Hospital. We had a great turnout of characters from a galaxy far, far away as well as a couple of characters from the Disney universe and, since it was Halloween, a Ghostbuster, just to keep those pesky ghosts away. After trying to find the light switch in our changing area and accidentally pulling a Code Blue (oops!), we got suited up and visdited with about a dozen kids as well as some nurses and a doctor. We had some great gift bags to give out to the kids that included LEGO Star Wars activity books, crayons, trading cards, temporary tattoos among other things. Captain Jack even passed out Coca-Cola’s that said ‘Share A Coke With A Captain’. A big thank you to everyone who donated items for the kids, it is very much appreciated. This marks the 8th year the Carolina Garrison and Freedom Base/Blue Ridge Base has participated in this event and it continues to be one of the most popular events for the Carolinas. I would like to thank everyone who has ever participated in these visits, without you guys this event would not happen.
