What a spectacular afternoon! Shoreview was excited and all decked out in snowflakes and sparkles to have this years 2017 St. Paul Winter Carnival Royalty join us along with Klondike Kate.
They assisted us in crowning and knighting Shoreview’s 2017 Royalty
Don Truhler our King,
Florence Hoel our Queen,
Valda Liepins our Klondike Kate,
Judy Smith our princess and
Jim Seabloom our Vulcan.
It was wonderful to see the community come together for this special event and that we were included in this special time. The royal family mingled after with the residents where we could capture many smiles and good times. Questions were asked, hugs were given and stories were told.
Mary Kay Lukoskie and Elaine Underdahl were former Queens in the 50’s and brought their pictures to share with this years royalty.
We were even blessed with Maureen Dammon who was also a former Queen of Snows help us make this event extra special.Upon leaving we presented the ladies of the Royal Family some beautiful “winter” gifts which they made specially for them.
Another year of Winter time memories!!
Thank you 2017 St Paul Royal Family!!
“Hail King Boreas and his Queen”
