This year our Rotary Club of San Jose East/Evergreen were the 'Freedom Sponsor' of the 'Rose, White, and Blue Parade' in San Jose, CA. As part of this sponsorship, our logo was displayed on their website as a Sponsor. We were given a car to ride in the VIP section of the parade. Past President Robbie, Secretary Manjeet, and Community Service Director Arpita rode the car in the VIP section waving and cheering the crowd. President Harbinder walked along District 5170 Area 5 interactors passing along the route 'Rotary SJEE' flyers to the San Jose residents who lined up on both sides of the road along the parade route. It was a great success in all measure and both Past President Robbie, as well as President Harbinder, got time on the live coverage to talk about the club for a minute. Also from the stage, the announcer talked about our Rotary Club of San Jose East/Evergreen while we walked past the stage in the middle of the parade route. It gave us quite a bit of publicity and visibility in the community. Our members Dave Cortese, and Kensan Chu also ride cars in the VIP section on their own as a community leader.
Here are some of the photographs:
