The Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee’s Ninety Second Gift
As Chair of the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee,
I am given the opportunity to promote that part of my life I call
Rotary to the world in forty-five to ninety seconds. As Rotarians we
change people’s lives and give them hope where there is none. Many
times in order to achieve our goals we must find a way to have
people of different backgrounds sit down at the table and negotiate
a safe environment for our volunteers to work. This year’s entry
will highlight Rotary’s efforts to create a more peaceful world.
Since Rotary returned to the
Tournament of Roses Parade in 1980, the New Year’s
Day pageant has become a highlight on the Rotary calendar. Seen in
Pasadena by over 700,000 people, television coverage of the floral
extravaganza reaches about 80 million more around the world,
providing Rotary with the valuable opportunity to showcase our
programs and activities.
“Be A Gift To The World” will be RI President, Ravi
Ravindran’s theme for this year. The Rotary Rose Parade
Float Committee is a gift to Rotary. Although the float is
not a project of Rotary International, the success of the float is a
tribute to the dedication of the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee
consisting of volunteer Rotarians from across North America. Our
efforts, supported entirely by
voluntary financial contributions from Rotary clubs across the
United States and Canada, 2016 will make this the 37th consecutive
entry in the Tournament of Roses
Parade. The Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee is
proud to provide this Rotary recognition campaign tool as a gift to
Rotary International and the 1.2 million Rotarians who dedicate our
lives to making a positive difference in that place someone calls
