Miss IGH Service Project

125lbs of rice later and my third service project became a success! I decided to make heat/cold packs to help people that are in pain and could use some comfort in their lives. This project took a lot more time than I expected and we had some setbacks to ensure recipient safety during covid-19, but I learned a lot along the way and I am grateful to my many family members that helped me! We finished with over 100 heat packs and dropped them off to be sanitized and delivered. Packs are going patients at various locations including the Northfield Retirement Community, Presbyterian Homes in Apple Valley, Life Course-MN, Abbot Northwestern Hospital, and Allina Health. I am excited for these heat/cold packs to provide comfort and support to the recipients and I hope they get a lot of use!

Inver Grove Heights Days 2020 – Check out some of the #55SitesInTheHeights

Our Royal family visited many of the #55SitesInTheHeights. How many of these places have you been to? Did you know what makes them famous? Did you know the histories behind them? What do you think are some of the most recognizable places in Inver Grove Heights and why?  

Little Miss Service Project – Inver Grove Heights Fire Department

For my final service project, I choose to cook a homemade dinner for Station 2 of the Inver Grove Heights Fire Department. They do so much for our community, so I wanted to do something nice for them as a thank you. I made baked ziti, garlic bread, Caesar salad, and a french silk pie. I got to meet the fire Chief Judy and all of the firefighters on duty. Everyone was very nice. My favorite part was when I got to see all of the fire trucks.

Little Miss Sponsor Visit – Inver Grove Honda

This past weekend I was able to visit with my sponsor Inver Grove Honda. I am so thankful for their support. Without our sponsor’s support this program would not be possible. I was able to meet their management team and they were all so nice.

Service Project with Project Delta.

For my second service project, I decided to team up with a wonderful organization called Project Delta! With Project Delta, I fostered and helped train a dog named Sampson to become a service dog for a veteran suffering from PTSD. He attended trainings every Tuesday and the rest of the week he was in my care to keep training and stay active! My favorite trick was telling him to “hold it” and he would hold something in his mouth that you are handing to him. This could include things such as keys, a pill bottle, etc. It was a busy few months for the both of us and I was joyful to see him improve in responding to commands as well as become more focused in high stress situations. When I was notified that Sampson paired with a veteran it was hard to say goodbye, but I know he will help someone who really needs Sampson’s love and care!

Open Door Pantry

On Thursday, July 30th we volunteered at the Open Door Pantry in Eagan. The Open Door Pantry is an amazing organization that distributes food to the community. Here we helped shop for customers and pack boxes of nonperishable food items. Due to the Covid customers are not allowed to shop for themselves so we played a big part buy gathering the food items which they selected from a list, this was a little more difficult than before Covid because we had to pick it all ourselves. We were happy to help out with such a great organization. We also enjoyed meeting the other volunteers they were so helpful. At the end of our shift, we lent a hand in the cleanup process. We would like to thank The Open Door Pantry for letting us volunteer.

Terrific Tuesday at South Valley Park

On Tuesday, July 28, Teah, Marissa, and I attend Terrific Tuesday at South Valley Park. At this event, we helped set up and guide visitors to the show. This week at Terrific Tuesday there was a band that came to entertain the families. We loved singing along with the songs as well as helping get the kids excited about the music and being outdoors on a beautiful Tuesday morning. Thanks to Parks and Recreation for letting us attend this event.

Service Project – Animal Ark

Animal Ark is a non-kill animal shelter in Hastings, Minnesota. Animal Ark has dogs and cats available for adoption or fostering. I collected some dog toys and learned how to sew and made some cat toys with Catnip, and also purchased some cleaning supplies for the shelter. There are cat condos that are really nice that the cats live in, while they are staying there. I was also hoping to volunteer there, but because of Covid, I was sadly not able to. My royalty sister Teah and my sister Kenzie help deliver some of the items.

River Falls “Quoranation”

It has been a long few months for our royal family, not being able to attend any events, but on Thursday, July 9th, we were able to support the River Falls Ambassadors and attend their coronation! It was exciting to see other royalty programs again and talk to them about what their festival has been up to recently. What River Falls called as a “Quoranation” was uniquely held on a baseball field as we got to meet the candidates. We look forward to spending this next year with the newly crowned River Falls Ambassadors!
