My wife and I were among the million or so who attended the 1992 Rose Parade, which was absolutely fantastic. The Rose Parade provides a beautiful start of the New Year for millions of Americans across our country and to many people throughout the rest of the world. I think we all owe a great deal of gratitude to the men and women of the Tournament of Roses who continue this beautiful American tradition. One rarely comes across such dedication, enthusiasm, courtesy and helpfulness that the people in white (the Tournament of Roses volunteers) displayed. I sincerely thank and salute all these magnificent volunteers from Robert Cheney, president, to the horse clean-up brigade.
