Star Wars Festival "food-raiser" set for July 7

Is it possible that Darth Vader is a force for good in the universe?
We often rely on arts and music and creativity to lift our spirits during hard times. They also help turn on lights where darkness reigns.

Fellow prog-blogger and minister Rodger McDaniel announces this good (and fun) cause:

Highlands United Presbyterian Church announces its "Star Wars" Festival “food-raiser” for NEEDS. The STAR WARS FESTIVAL, is scheduled for 6:30-9:30 p..m., Thursday, July 7, at the Highlands United Presbyterian Church, 2390 Pattison Ave.Cheyenne . The public is invited to attend.
