The Special Olympics movement was founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, and has grown to more than 4.5 million athletes in 170 countries. With the support of more than 1.3 million coaches and volunteers, Special Olympics delivers 32 Olympic-type sports and more than 94,000 games and competitions throughout the year.
The games strive to create a better world by fostering acceptance and inclusion of all. A major part of this incredible event is the wonderful fans that participate by cheering on the athletes and supporting the wonderful program that is the Special Olympics. As soon as Rose Paving-Los Angeles caught wind of the World Games being in Los Angeles, they knew they had to get involved. Rose Paving joined in by being ‘Fans in the Stands’, where employees and their families pick an Olympic event(s) (Soccer) and become ‘those’ fans in the stands. You know the ones – they meet and cheer the athletes before, during, and after their games, making sure the athletes know how special they are. Overall, the events make such a positive change and impact, not only in Los Angeles, but the World. The Rose Paving team have made some lifelong friendships from around the world.
To learn more and help support the cause follow the Special Olympics World Games on social media or visit their website – www.specialolympics.org.
Jobsite Location: Old Plank Road Trail
Project Scope: Asphalt Joint / Crack Route and Fill of the 20 mile trail that runs from Joliet to Park Forest.
Procedure: The crack is first routed out using a routing machine. The machine creates a ½-inch deep by ½-inch wide reservoir / channel for the crackseal material. Next, an air compressor is used to clean out the channel to make sure it is free of debris and dust. Hot material is then injected into the channel, using a wand with a special tip and flush filled.
The heated material (375 – 400°) includes rubberized asphalt, low modulus rubberized asphalt, fiberized asphalt and asphalt rubber. It adheres to the channel like glue. Because of the rubber content, the crackseal allows the asphalt to expand and contract as necessary without continuing to crack.
Asphalt should be cracksealed every 2 – 3 years to prevent more costly repairs such as resurfacing or reconstruction.
Feel free to Contact us today if you would like more information on this efficient repair method or if you have any questions!
A critical factor in college matriculation is a long term relationship with at least one adult person who believes in the student. Center for Companies That Care has facilitated this relationship by implementing a four-year mentoring program matching low-income, urban students with corporate mentors. A group of employees within a company will formally mentor one student through high school graduation and into college. We currently sponsor 3 students and are participating in the March to College, an annual fundraising event.
In addition to fundraising, The March to College includes a timed 5k walk / run to encourage healthy living, and a college fair, to help students set sites on college early by exposing them to information about area colleges and universities. Our company goal is to raise $3000 this year.

The net proceeds benefit the Neighbors in Need fund which offers help and hope to families that are facing an imminent crisis that threatens their access to basic human needs, like food, shelter, clothing, or electricity. The numbers just came in and over $64k was raised this year.
This year our President, Ed Campbell and his two sons, Eddie and Charlie participated. Everyone had a great time and workout at the same time.
The ceremony consisted of several parts including the presentation of the flag, the acceptance and dedication of the flag, and the raising of the flag. The Marine Corps League, comprised of 2 riflemen and 2 flag bearers, along with our CEO, Alan Rose, and several members of management, including Jose Valdez, Branch Operations Manager and former Marine, and were in attendance to witness this special ceremony. As “Old Glory” waved proudly in front of Rose Paving corporate headquarters, all in attendance stood to recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
Similar flag dedications are planned for each of Rose Paving’s U.S. offices in 2015, and all will likewise honor our nation’s service men and women.
Did you know?
- The flag should be lighted at all times, either by sunlight or by an appropriate light source.
- The flag should never be used for receiving, holding, carrying, or delivering anything.
- When a flag becomes frayed or worn to the point it is no longer fit to serve as a symbol of our country, it should be destroyed by burning in a dignified manner.
- When flags of two or more nations are displayed, they are to be flown from separate staffs of the same height.
