Rotary International 2020 Rose Parade Float
We will be asking members to donate money this week to support Rotary International's entry in the Rose Parade.  What we collect this week will be added to the amount we collected on November 21st.
     This year marks the 41st consecutive year we have entered a float in the Pasadena Rose Parade. Each year there are 700,000 spectators viewing the parade along the parade route and another 70 million plus that see it on television around the world.
     This year we are planning on doing a number of things differently starting with following President Elect Mark Maloney’s (who will be on the Float with his wife Gay), theme of “Rotary Connects the World”. We will have coverage of our float in the major international Rotary magazines for the first time and will be inviting them to send participants for the Float. Our intent is to represent Rotary as the International organization it is and bring awareness to our international humanitarian efforts.
     The Rose Parade theme of “The Power of Hope” will also be a major theme for our Float, as we will have our international partners also represented on the float as well.
2020 promises to be a Great year for Rotary, and we look forward to celebrating this with all of you.
     Thank you for your support,
