DONATE LIFE ROSE PARADE FLOAT- PLACEMENT OF INDIANA ROSES IN FAMILY CIRCLE GARDEN ON DONATE LIFE ROSE PARADE FLOAT
From IOPO Website
Late Tuesday evening (actually 12:30 AM Wednesday Indiana time!) we had the honor of personally placing the dedicated roses from Indiana on the front of the Donate Life Float. Our families helped us read the dedication tags aloud before placing each rose on the float. We carefully placed more than 100 roses, including 85 roses from Lutheran Hospital honoring each of their donors, and several roses dedicated by IOPO volunteers and other Indiana families. It was our pleasure and a privilege to help with this, and it will be one of many special memories of our Rose Parade experience!
