    The Towson 4th of July parade event is upon us!  Towsontowne Rotary will have a large float and we have the opportunity to march along with it and can hand out items.  Lynne ordered a couple hundred patriotic-themed small toys to hand out along with a small banner and some streamers for us to wave.  We should be pushing the Wheel to Heal so if we can put together a couple small pushcarts with our theme, it would be awesome!    It’s a parade, so think outrageous.  Anything we can do to draw attention to ourselves is desired.  Big headdresses very much welcomed.  Bring your whole family!  We will walk along the route and hand out toys with our website attached.  When the parade stalls, as they always do, we will talk up our event with everyone who is along the route.  We will have water to hand out along with the toys.  If you’ve never done a parade before, you will love this!  If you are able to participate in promoting Rotary by riding on the float or walking beside it, be at Towsontowne Blvd. between Bosley and Osler in Towson at 10 a.m. as the parade starts at 10:30 a.m. sharp.  Parade will be over at 11:30 a.m. so you should not have any problem getting home to prepare for that cookout or getting to the 4th of July party.   You can find the float  by looking for Division 1 Unity Number 19 or look for the gigantic Rotary Wheel that should stand out from the crowd.   Keep in mind you can park in the Library Garage or the Towson University Garage and walk over to Towsontowne Blvd where the floats are lining up between Bosley and Osler.  Please join us--bring the kids!

    THIS WEEK’S MEETING: It was a pleasure to meet Charlie Cannon, Lynne’s cousin and a junior at Calvert Hall. Charlie was one or our RYLA students this year. He shared the weekend with Michael Greenspan from Hereford, but apparently no one remembered to ask Michael to visit the club today.  Charlie told us about his experiences at RYLA, made especially memorable as it coincided with our huge winter blizzard, February 13-15. 

    The Rotary International District 7620 RYLA program is an intense 3 day, 2 night leadership training program that is designed to recognize, encourage and further develop the leadership skills of 11th and 12th grade high school students who have shown a potential for rendering important service to their schools and communities. More than 150 high school students attend RYLA at the 4-H Conference Center in Chevy Chase every year, sponsored by area Rotary Clubs. The 3 days and 2 nights Include: speakers, low ropes, flag presentation, talent show, mascot presentation, work sessions, sharefair & service project, presentation, Funny Wig/Hat/Hair. 

    Charlie talked about the inspirational speakers, the team building and leadership training. Each team was charged with developing a charitable project and presenting it to the entire group. Charlie’s team worked on making 3-D printed prosthetic limbs for disabled veterans and took second place in the competition. He said that many of the project ideas were amazing. Charlie has his own lawn cutting business and is working this summer with his mother at Loyola University where she is Project Manager/Technology Trainer.
