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.
