Give a Kid a Flag to Wave
Our annual Give a Kid a Flag to Wave event was on Friday September 18th during the Children's Parade for the Dixie Round Up Rodeo. Last year we wore a bright yellow t-shirt to the parade in hopes of bringing better recognition to the club. But, this year we stepped it up to a whole new level by actually being in the parade and teaming up with BACA. The parade announcers at each block corner announced the club and BACA's presence in the parade was to bring awareness to Child Abuse. And it sounded like the crowds responded well. We had our banners for the club and for the Mayors Walk. We had some club members wearing our ever lovely yellow t-shirts and others wearing the new Mayors Walk t-shirts and handed out over 1,200 flags. Due to lack of participation from club members, those handing out flags couldn't keep up with the banners and fell behind a few parade entries. I think we can do better next year with more members participating and possibly create a new banner that states: Give a Kid a Flag to Wave! the Exchange Club and BACA teaming up against Child Abuse! or something like that. Your feed back and input at our next business meeting would be very helpful.
