Ron D. Burton, President, Rotary International, 2012-13

Ron Burton, RI President 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 your support.

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.

The 2014 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.

Ron D. Burton
President, Rotary International 2013-14
