An Auburn man will gain a niche in the history of the Tournament of Roses Parade on Jan. 2. Richard B. Olfene, imperial potentate of Shrine of North America, will ride on a Shriners’ float in the parade, the first time an imperial potentate has appeared in the Rose Parade.

Olfene and his wife will be in Los Angeles for the New Years weekend and he will be on the Shriners’ float Jan. 1 when the floats are judged by the Tournament of Roses Committee. He will also be on the float in the parade and attend the Rose Bowl game.
