Born and Raised in Portland, She Has Tons of Rose Festival Memories

I'm 72 and was born and raised in Portland. I have tons of memories!

Yes, neighborhood kids all took decorated bikes to ride in the Junior Parade. We lived close by and attended Rose City Park School.

In the mid '40's, two neighborhood kids were Junior Queen Sharon Brady and Prime Minister Everett Stiles. Whee!

In high school I followed the whole Grand Floral Parade to watch my boyfriend play drums in the Grant high school marching band.

What a great idea to collect memories of 100 years. Thanks!
