The annual 4th of July Parade is one of Rancho Santa Fe’s most beloved events and this year was another great turnout of the community. Future Legends representatives were out in full force as well and in addition to the faithful board members and mentors, it was a wonderful opportunity for scholars’ home for the summer to spend some time getting to know one another. They loved the experience of walking in the parade. As they have been doing for the past several years, Future Legends had a tent set up for “Music in the Park” with volunteers ready to share about this amazing scholarship and mentorship program. This organization has strong ties to the community and the Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club, and they were grateful to be able to show their support.
