We, as a lacrosse parent organization, have been concerned about recruiting and building our lacrosse program. At our last parent meeting, I asked for input and the local town festivals were brought up as options. One of the mom's ran with it and got us into the Lehi Round Up parade last minute. I have never been in a parade before and was excited for this opportunity. It was GREAT! So much fun! It was warm, okay, hot, and sunny and exciting to be a part. We tossed out candy (gone within 4 blocks, note to self - quadruple the candy next year!) and left over t-shirts (about 75 of them). We had both the boys and girls varsity teams there walking and riding on the float (trailer). Here is a small sampling of our experience. By the way, I stood on the top of the trailer and only once did I almost fall off when he came to a stop after running over one of the girls' sticks that was dropped. Teri Gapinski saved me by grabbing the back of my shirt. That would not have been pretty to take a header into the back of the pickup truck!
