What an awesome weekend. We've had a busy couple of weeks preparing for the local fair and parade, and doing some community outreach. It started about a month ago when we took the 1966 Ford Mustang to the shop for a tune up. Then, we began drawing up ideas for our two parade entries- one entry was for our Softball Team the "Rain Drops" and the other was for Tully Group.
Rick, Kaeli, and Liam Tully waxed and polished the cars, ordered decorations, and assembled the TCG squad. Kirstie Tully rounded up parents and players to coordinate the "Rain Drops" float with the 1966 Ford Mustang while Kaeli prepared the 1931 Ford Model A for Tully Group.
The Friday night before the Fair we also attended a Bocce Ball tournament (not affiliated with the Mayfair) hosted by Law Enforcement Volunteers with the Napa County Law Enforcement Torch Run to benefit the Special Olympics. It was a great time with all of the athletes serving as Bocce Ball coaches. Huge thank you to Todd Shulman for hosting an excellent event.
The next morning we woke up bright and early for the Dixon Mayfair Parade. Tully Consulting Group team members showed up at the office on a Saturday morning to decorate (thanks Mary, Will, and Juan!) the '31 while our softball girls met up at the Parade Line Up to decorate to Mustang and trailer.
As you can see from the pictures below, we had a pretty awesome time.
Huge thank you to all of the Rain Drop's parents who contributed decorations and decorating skills, we really think it was our best float yet. And thanks to the Tully Group employees who took time out on a Saturday to pass out 600 lollipops and educational flyers/coloring pages.
Next up was the Dixon May Fair Auction where local youth auction their market ready hogs, sheep, steer, goats, and other small animals that they've raised for the past several months. These youth spend considerable amounts of time walking, feeding, and taking care of their Fair animal(s). We like to take this opportunity to purchase some of the best locally grown meat while supporting an excellent extracurricular for our youth.
This year Tully Group took home two sheep and a goat.
It was a busy weekend. We love being able to help our community and participate! Tonight we are off to the Dixon High School Scholarship Awards Ceremony to present our STEM Scholarship winners for 2019. Stay tuned for the next post!
