Rotary International’s 2016-2017 is “Rotary Serving Humanity” and the Tournament of Roses is “Echoes of Success” as announced yesterday by the Tournament. Ratliff announced “Echoes of Success” as the theme for the 128th Rose Parade. “Echoes of Success celebrates those people, organizations and institutions that play a part in the stories of the success of others,” shared Ratliff. “Success cannot be achieved alone. It takes the support, dedication, compassion and love of many others to help in finding that satisfaction of success. Family, friends and teachers contribute selflessly and tirelessly to the success of many. These influences in our lives, these people of selfless commitment, these Echoes of Success make us who we are.”
