This year’s Rotary float theme: All the Places We Go.”
For 34 years, Rotary International has been participating in the renowned Rose Parade, held each New Year’s Day in Pasadena, CA.
Why? As Rotary founder Paul Harris said, “In the promotion of Rotary, it is important to reach large numbers and you cannot reach them privately.” And the Rose Parade receives international television coverage.
To be part of the campaign, Rotarians individually and Rotary clubs as a whole are asked to contribute no later than November 15. Donations may be made by check or credit card sent via USPS or by contributing online.
The Rotary float receives no money from Rotary International. It is entirely funded by club members and friends. Your club’s “Dollar a Flower” donation will allow you to be entered in a drawing to send one local Rotarian to be a float participant in the 2013 Rose Parade.
