His is a Rose Festival Family

I've lived in Portland all my life and as a child my family was very involved in the Rose Festival during the late 1940's.

My father was a Royal Rosarian and my sister was a Junior Princess from District 1 (the ceremonies were held at the Hollywood theater in those days).

I was a Cub Scout the year that my sister was Princess and I carried a banner in the Junior Parade for her district.

Those were exciting days in the early years!

Oh, yes -- I also marched in the Grand Floral Parade for four years while in high school. Just a couple of good memories. Thanks.
