The Pasadena Tournament of Roses Board of Directors recently confirmed Lance Tibbet as president for the 2017-18 Tournament of Roses year to provide leadership for the 129th Rose Parade and Rose Bowl game.
Tibbet chose “Making a Difference” as the Pasadena Tournament of Roses theme to encourage creativity in float entries, marching bands and equestrian participants.
“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.” he said. “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.”
