Has Attended the Parade Forever

I attended the Grand Floral Parade as far back as I can remember, with the exception of 1956. That year I had just given birth to my daughter and wasn't feeling well enough to attend.

But I remember sitting on Foster Road in 1948, which is where the parade had been re-routed after the Vanport flood -- and my seat being wet from all the rain we had.

Now I have a granddaughter serving in Iraq, and I write her every day and send her the clippings about the new Rose Festival Court members.
