Archives For Flowers

The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is the presidential library and final resting place of Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th President of the United States. Located in Yorba Linda, California, the library is one of 13 administered by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). From its original dedication in 1990 until becoming a federal facility on July 11, 2007, the library and museum was operated by the private Richard Nixon Foundation and was known as the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace. The 9-acre (3.6 ha) campus incorporates the Richard Nixon Birthplace, a National Historic Landmark where Nixon was born in 1913 and spent his childhood.

The museum, housed in a 52,000-square-foot (4,800 m2) building, offers a narrative of Nixon’s life and career. Behind the museum is the birthplace, which was constructed by Nixon’s father using a homebuilding kit, and restored to appear as it was in the 1910s.

President Nixon and Pat Nixon are buried on the grounds, just a few feet from the birthplace.

Eisenhower from 1953 to 1961. The President’s VH-3A “Sea King”helicopter is on permanent display.

The 126th Rose Parade

December 24, 2014 — Leave a comment

Each New Year’s Day, the world focuses its attention on Pasadena, home of the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl Game. It’s a celebration more than a century old – a festival of flowers, music, and sports unequaled anywhere else in the world. It’s America’s New Year Celebration, a greeting to the world on the first day of the year, and a salute to the community spirit and love of pageantry that have thrived in Pasadena for more than 100 years.

An event as large as the Tournament of Roses requires about 80,000 hours of combined manpower each year. That manpower is supplied by 935 members of the non-profit Tournament of Roses Association, a volunteer organization dedicated to presenting an internationally recognized New Year’s celebration.
