2018 Tournament of Roses Theme Announced
On January 19, 2017 the Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee was thrilled to hear Lance Tibbet, President of the Pasadena Tournament of Roses, announce "Making a Difference" as the 2018 Rose Parade theme to promote recognition of the good work of volunteers.  What a perfect blend for a float promoting Rotary and the works of its volunteers!
Two days earlier on January 17, 2017 Rotary International President Elect Ian H.S. Riseley announced to Rotarians at the International Assembly the 2017-2018 Rotary theme "Rotary:  Making A Difference."  President Elect Ian explained to attendees that "In Rotary we know we can do more together than what we can do alone...we are united in our common is Rotary making a difference to build stronger and more active clubs that serve in better and more lasting ways.  It is believing in a Rotary that is recognized for the good work that it does.  A Rotary that will continue to grow, to endure, to go from strength to strength - making a difference to our communities, our countries, our world and our souls.  This is what we will achieve next year - “Rotary Making A Difference.”
The Rotary Rose Parade Float Committee (RRPFC) is sustained by Rotary Districts 5300, 5190, 5240, 5280, 5320, 5330, 5340, and 5500 and receives no funding from Rotary International.  The decorators and members of the committee represent over 26 Rotary Districts in the USA and Canada and donate hundreds of hours to insure we have a beautiful and successful float.
