I wish y’all a berry Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Rosy Rose Parade & Rose Bowl from back here in Pasadena, California! Our chilly arctic weather reminds us why this is the most wonderful time of the year.
But I know talk is cheap, as our politicians have taught some of us well, and it’s gotten cheaper in this economy.
So in this season of gift-giving & shopping, reduced job hours, & “vacations”, lemme suggest a gift you may wanna have Santa Claus add to your gifting list: a donation(s) to a local Tournament of Roses float association.
Unlike most Rose Parade floats, the above local cities have continued to raise their own funds for constructing their self-built float! Admirable. And I pray they can continue that policy. Therefore they can, especially, use whatever financial or volunteer support you can contribute!
I’ve helped out in my tiny way in the past. This year I’ve all but totally sat this one out. However, if you are currently able to assist, in even a small way, please click one or more of the above Rose float association links. They will appreciate it.
