What do you think this is all all about. They want an all snow white Queen and court.

I have no doubt this is based on race. Pasadena can't have a brown queen. What will the sponsors think?!

we are a democracy and queens and princesses are things of the past. Only gays use those terms. If Pasadena wants a female president they should vote for her.

What? You sound as bigoted as the committee.

I volunteered a couple of months ago! I sent email to the Tournament of Roses volunteer contact site and I never received a response of any kind.I previously served on a non-profit board in Pasadena. And, served on multiple boards and non-profits in HP..."No response!" Therefore, I guess it's fair to conclude - it's not about volunteers not stepping forward. Maybe it's about the beautiful, talented young ladies from HP and ER.
