 Director's Award

The Sierra Rose Float Association has done 
it again! The all volunteer group won the 
2019 Tournament of Roses Parade's prestigious 
Director's Award for "The most outstanding artistic 
design and use of floral and non-floral materials". 
This is the 13th win for SMRFA out of the last 14 
entries into the internationally known parade.

 In addition to Sierra Madre Princesses Lydia Plaut, 
Kate Parry and Tess Perkins adorned in traditional 
Japanese attire riding on the float, volunteer Saeko 
Kujiraoka played the Koto a traditional Japanese 
instrument along the parade route. 

 The 2019 Parade Theme is "The Melody of Life" and 
"Harmony's Garden" is the 2019 Rose Parade float 
entry. The inspiration for this design is our very 
own Japanese Garden (Goodwill Garden) located 
on the campus of the Sierra Madre Elementary 
School. Designed by Jason Redfox.

 President Barb Bevington is beaming with pride 
and expressed her appreciation for the volunteers 
and Sierra Madre Community's support. During 
Deco Week, the Sierra Madre Rotary Club, The 
Only Place In Town, The Mountain Views News/
Kensington Senior Living, The Sierra Madre 
Kiwanis Club and Christ Church (formerly 
Congregational Church) provided dinner for the 
volunteers each night. Photos courtesy SMRFA
