The ROW Experience: Tours in 2008

In 2008, still many years before the thought of forming a nonprofit museum, Steve was giving tours to school kids on a regular basis.

Happenings: Star Wars Celebration III, Indianapolis, IN

Star Wars Celebration III took place from April 21 to 24, 2005 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, the site of Celebration II. The guest of honor was George Lucas himself, making his first fan convention appearance since the Star Wars 10th Anniversary con in 1987.
