Looking for former Gym Dandies!!!!

We are looking for former Gym Dandies!!!

Mr. Cahill his retiring. This is his last year as the director of the Gym Dandies. He started this group in 1980 and has taught probably over a 1,000 kids to unicycle, juggle, and how to perservere in life. Now in his 70’s he has finally decided to retire. The GD group is going to keep going with the help of determined parents and Mr. Cahill’s current assistants.

At the end of the year we always have a celebration of the years activities. We want as many former GD kids - now adults - as possible there to send him off. Or, if they can’t be there, present him with letters of thanks.

For those who don’t know who the GD’s are, it is a public school group that he started in the 1980’s with a few kids. It grew into an organization with over 100 kids in it from 3rd to 12th grade. They have been in parades like the Washington Cherry Blossom Parade, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and President Obama’s 2nd Inaugural Parade. It not only gave the kids a great opportunity to ride with 50+ giraffes through a crowd a people, but it also served as an opportunity to broaden the kids horizons with site seeing and museum visits included with each trip.

So we want a big sendoff. So PM me if you were in the GD and want to big there or if you want to express your thanks in an email or letter we can pass along to him. Even if you were not in the GD, but were in some way influenced in a positive way by the GDs, for instance, if you saw them in a parade, that would be great to pass that along.
