Built around a truck loaned by Dave and Shirley Allesandroni’s Carroll County Landscape, the curling entry featured posters, banners, and a curling scoreboard, along with brooms, curling stones, and, of course, a corps of hardy marchers who braved the day’s scorching heat and humidity to hand out informational materials about the LRCA.

In addition to Shirley and Dave — who drove the vehicle — marchers included Eileen Neal, Bill Connors, Susan Goodwin, Carl Crosley, Chris Pollock, and Rich Masse. 

The LRCA presence elicited an enthusiastic response from the crowd — especially Eileen’s brisk sweeping drills — and the parade is expected to boost what should be an enthusiastic response to the organization’s Fall league, which will begin registration on July 23.
