On Friday, June 24, RCTC participated in the Rochesterfest Grand Parade as float #54. The float featured a pick-up truck themed in 90th Anniversary graphics and a trailer with a 6' bee hive and yellowjackets. Approximately 35 students and staff walked the parade dressed in 90th Anniversary t-shirts or athletic uniforms.

Parade viewers received Bit-O-Honey candy, 90th anniversary stickers, Sting tattoos and flyers highlighting this year’s events.

Many thanks go out to the following local businesses for their sponsorship which helped make the project a success!

• Adamson's Motors for loaning the Dodge Ram pick-up
• Valley Featherlite for loaning the 12' x 6' trailer
• Goodyear Tires for loaning the inflatable inner tubes to create the hive
• Pepsi for the banners

Special thanks and appreciation to the many people who have enthusiastically participated in building the float or loaned us tools, materials, and other resources!  This would not have been possible without your help!

On Saturday, July 9th the float made an appearance at Byron's Good Neighbor Days and took the FIRST PLACE trophy for best float!
