Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee
Ron D. Burton,
President, Rotary International, 2012-13
The Annual Tournament of Roses Parade provides a great
opportunity to reach millions of people with the message of
Rotary's commitment to service and dedication to peace. This is
a unique public relations opportunity and one that depends on
Rotary’s participation in the Rose Parade
depends entirely on upon the voluntary contributions of Rotary
clubs in the United States, Canada, and the Caribbean to the
multi-district Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee. The members
of this committee and all the volunteers who participate are to
be commended for their dedication and talents who have made this
effort so successful year after year.
Tournament of Rose theme is "Dreams Come True." The Float
promoting Rotary International will be designed to blend this
idea with the 2013-14 theme "Engage Rotary – Change Lives" in a
way that captures the ideal of Rotary service. The Pasadena
Tournament of Roses estimates that the parade is seen by 39
million people in the United States and many millions more
internationally in more than 150 countries. What a wonderful
audience to reach with Rotary’s message!
I ask you to
support this effort in whatever way you can.
