As volunteers decorated the float in Irwindale at the Fiesta Floats facility, several special visitors — Mayor Patrick Furey and City Council Members — came out to get a firsthand peek at the beautiful floral creation.

Those special visitors gave pause to remember Former Mayor Dee Hardison, who passed away recently. Hardison had volunteered for the past 40 years decorating the City’s float.

In honor of Hardison, 40 roses were placed on the float to symbolize her dedication. Mayor Furey placed the first rose.
