501st Legion | MidSouth Garrison

On Saturday 3 October 2009 The Tennessee Titans in conjunction with Comcast and The Cartoon Network held their annual ’Titans All Pro Dad Day’. All Pro Dad is an innovative program designed to equip men with the moral and educational tools necessary to make them better fathers and role models, and to build character in their children and communities.

Preliminary estimates were that over 400 families attended the event. Of note, Comcast and the Cartoon Network informed us that we were the first market this season to have 501st and Rebel Legions members in attendance.
The event was from 2:00-5:00pm and we arrived around 1:00pm. The Mid-South Garrison and Corellian Base were out in full force to support this great cause. The weather was beautiful in the upper 70’s with clear skies and the field was in great condition. There was a constant breeze that kept the clones cool and the jedi cloaks billowing.

The Cartoon Network had a large backdrop featuring characters from the Clone Wars cartoon series and a green screen for photographs. We also conducted patrols of the sports field that resulted in a ‘touchdown’ of smiles and picture taking. Thanks to everyone who attended and made this an awesome event!
