Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee
K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran,
President, Rotary International, 2015-16
Long before Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, Rotarians around
the world recognized the importance of finding new and creative
ways to spread the word about Rotary. The Rotary Rose Parade
Float Committee float is perhaps the longest-standing, and
best-known, of these projects. Every year for the last 37 years,
Rotarians across the United States and Canada have carried on
the tradition of designing and building a float to enter in the
Rose Parade. This year, the float will be seen by an
international television and social media audience of over 83
million people in more than 200 countries!
I look forward
to riding on the float in this year’s parade, and congratulate
the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee for their creativity,
commitment, and hard work. The float is a wonderful way to raise
Rotary’s profile, and to show how Rotarians can Be A Gift to
the World, by Working Together for Peace.
