Last Saturday, December 16th, the Joongangilbo Student Club had the chance to go to the Rose Parade Float Volunteering program. Students’ jobs were simple, such as applying glue for rice or cutting the petals of the dry flowers. The job started at 9:00 A.M. and ended at 11 A.M.
The Rose Parade starts at 8:00 AMam PST. On January 1, 2018, in Pasadena, CA,California, USA according to the Rose Parade website. The Rose Parade started back in the winter of 1890, for the club members of Pasadena‘s distinguished Valley Hunt Club to promote the “Mediterranean of the West.” Thanks to California’s warm weather, the floats were able to have fresh flowers, even in winter.
According to official website, “The 2018 theme, ‘Making a Difference,’ is a way to honor and celebrate all of the people in our communities, who quietly and without desire for reward or recognition, act in selfless, generous and kind ways to aid or benefit others,” shared Tibbet. “It’s about the human acts of kindness that enrich the lives of others and are the source of inspiration, hope, joy and optimism for all of us.”
