Don't forget to watch the New Years Day Rose Bowl Parade featuring the Rotary themed float- Working Together For Peace

K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran, President, Rotary International, 2015-16

2015-16 RI President K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran Long before Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, Rotarians around the world recognized the importance of finding new and creative ways to spread the word about Rotary. The Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee float is perhaps the longest-standing, and best-known, of these projects. Every year for the last 37 years, Rotarians across the United States and Canada have carried on the tradition of designing and building a float to enter in the Rose Parade. This year, the float will be seen by an international television and social media audience of over 83 million people in more than 200 countries!

I look forward to riding on the float in this year’s parade, and congratulate the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee for their creativity, commitment, and hard work. The float is a wonderful way to raise Rotary’s profile, and to show how Rotarians can Be A Gift to the World, by Working Together for Peace.
