Dodgers Have First Rose Parade Float

The Los Angeles Dodgers are celebrating their 50th anniversary in Los Angeles with their first-ever Rose Parade float this New Year's Day.

A terrific who's who of Dodger greats will be riding on the float, including announcers Vin Scully and Jaime Jarrin, organist Nancy Bea Hefley, former manager Tommy Lasorda, "Peanut Man" Roger Owens, Ann Meyers Drysdale (widow of former pitcher and announcer Don Drysdale), Fernando Valenzuela, Wes Parker, Carl Erskine, Don Newcombe, and more.

Union 76 gas stations -- a Dodgers sponsor for the last half-century -- are having a promotion for fans to earn Rose Parade pins.

Fans who want to help decorate the float can visit FAWW Decoration.

My daughter worked on the Rotary Club float during her high school years, thanks to her participation in the Interact Club, and it was a wonderful experience. We're hopeful our son will have the same experience later this year.
