This beautiful float entered in the 1971 Pasadena Rose Parade took third place in the division. Entitled "Everything's Rosy" it depicts a typical boy looking at the world through rose colored glasses. This might also describe how a child would look at the world after treatment for blindness through our World Eye Bank. The float is 50' long, 16' wide and 16' high. The many colors are made up of red roses, red and white carnations, mums, Ti leaves, silver dollar eucalyptus, silver leaf, black onion seed and many others. Approximately 2000 man hours went into the final decoration, supplied by members of the order from many jurisdictions. Many thanks to all who helped both physically and financially.
