Message from Wade Nomura, Chair
2013 Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee

This year marks the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee's 35th consecutive year of promoting Rotary International with an entry in the 125th Annual Pasadena Tournament of Roses, Rose Parade. Rotary International President Elect Ron Burton’s theme for the 2013-2014 Rotary year is “Engage Rotary-Change Lives”, and the Tournament of Roses theme for the 2014 rose Parade is “Dreams Come True”. We will be focusing our 2014 float’s design and theme by combining these two outstanding, and related themes. Through Rotary, we have all changed lives and have been making dreams come true for over one hundred years.

I serve this year as the chair of the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee, an honor I will truly cherish as one of my Rotary highlights. I would like to personally thank the Rotary districts and Rotarians of Southern and Central California, and Nevada, for their continued pledged sponsorship of the Float and to all the Rotary Districts, Clubs and individuals Rotarians throughout the United States and Canada who also make donations and thus insure that this great public relations event is a reality each year.

We are proud to announce that Rotary International President Elect Ron Burton will be featured on the 2014 Float, along with other Rotarians who exemplify the mission of Rotary to promote world peace through better understanding. The viewing audience for the Tournament of Roses, Rose Parade is an estimated 500,000 in pre and post parade viewing; 700,000 on the Parade route; 40 million television viewers in the United States and millions more in over 200 countries worldwide.

We hope that you will also be a part of this unique public relations event for Rotary International. We are currently raising funds for the 2014 Float, and are in search of people willing to share in this unique opportunity to promote Rotary’s accomplishments to the millions of viewers around the world.

Enjoy our website, share it with others, and please consider becoming a donor for this unequalled public relations project. And, if you have time and will be near Pasadena, California in the days following Christmas through New Year's Eve, help us decorate the Float!

We look forward to meeting you and having you as a vital member in making this year’s Float the best publicity money can buy for Rotary International.

Thank You,
