Junior Miss Second Service Project.

For my second service project, I picked making Get Well cards and cards of Encouragement for the residents at Augustana Health Care, Apple Valley.  This place is special to me because my great-grandpa lives there. During this hard time with the Coronavirus, many of the residents get lonely and start to go into a depression so I decided to help out. With the help of so many people, we were able to make 410 cards. We made enough cards to give every resident in the facility a card such as the Transitional Care Center, Nursing Home Floors and Assisted Living Center. I wanted to thank everyone that helped put in all of the work in those cards so that the residents could have a brighter day.

Junior Miss Service Project

For my first service project, I did Corey’s Closet. Corey’s Closet is an organization created by one of our board members Michele Fox. This organization is to help teenagers and families with necessities that they need such as toiletries, clothes, etc. Corey’s closet is located at Simley High School. I chose to reach out and help this program because I can’t imagine what it’s like going out with things that you need and I think that it is important that people reach out and help organizations such as Corey’s Closet.
I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the donations and those who helped make my service project possible. I hope that all of the items that were donated help many people in need.

Miss Princess 2nd Service Project

For my second service project as the 2020 Miss Inver Grove Heights Princess, I decided I wanted to give back to the animals in the community. I started my project by reaching out to friends and family and asking them if they would be willing to donate any cat or dog supplies. I was very grateful to receive many donations from so many wonderful people. Thank you so much if you helped contribute to this project. Next, I decided that I wanted to handmake dog toys to donate as well. With the help of my mom, I ended up handmaking almost 100 dog toys to donate as well. These dog toys were made out of fleece that I had leftover from my last service project where I made tie blankets for children’s hospital. This fleece was also donated to me by friends and family. Once I had all of my supplies together I dropped off the supplies at Last Hope which is an animal organization that is located in Farmington. This organization helps to supply dog and cat items to people in the surrounding areas. On top of this, they also help get dogs and cats into foster homes until they can be adopted out. I am so grateful that I got to work with such an amazing organization on this project and I am also so grateful that I had the help of so many friends and family members to complete this project.

Leap Year Event

On Saturday, February 29th my royal sisters and I participated in the Inver Grove Heights Scholarship Programs Leap Year bowling event.  It was a lot of fun. There was bowling, a silent auction, and a taco feed. It was fun spending time with all of the girls from different royalty programs. Thank you to everyone from the community, neighboring communities, other royalty programs, and the past royalty and their families for coming out and supporting our program!

Little Miss Service Project

For my first service project, I chose to collect donations for Secondhand Hounds Animal Rescue. Secondhand Hounds Rescue, fosters and finds forever homes for dogs and cats. This project was special to me because that’s where we got our dog, Millie. For a little more than a month I collected new and gently used dog/cat supplies. I reached out to family, friends, and our community for donations. I am thankful for the amount of support I received from everyone. Thanks to all of the support I was able to donate so much stuff for the animals!

Crowning Achievements 2019

On November 2nd, my royal family and I had the opportunity to attend the crowning achievements pageant. There we met the new crowning Achievements court and a wide variety of ambassadors from surrounding cities. It was beautiful hearing about the ambitions and talents each contestant had and I cherished seeing the joy on each one of their faces when they were crowned. I hope to see their joyful personalities at another event soon!

Junior Princess Sponsor Visit

I met with my sponsor Greg Kuntz, with Remax Results on Friday, October 18. We talked about ideas that I could do for my community service projects. We also talked about some of the events we have already participated in and our upcoming events. My sponsor knows a lot about the Royalty life as he was previously King Boreas with the Winter Carnival. He has spoken at many Royal events in surrounding communities and loves to teach the candidates the proper parade wave.  I am thankful to have a sponsor that understands the commitment and can help guide me as I learn my role this year.

Good Samaritan Spaghetti Dinner

On Thursday, October 10th, my court and I visited Good Samaritan to help serve at their spaghetti dinner fundraiser, We were able to greet the public, seat them at tables, and then serve them their meal. I loved being able to serve the community while also spending time with my court and others in the city. Seeing friendly faces walk through the door made my night and showed me that we have such a strong community and we are always willing to help each other out. I had a wonderful evening and I look forward to working with Good Samaritan in the future.

On October 5th my royal sisters and I went to the Gertens Halloween event. We helped out with kid’s games, like reading Halloween books and playing pumpkin tic-tac-toe. My favorite thing was trying to build the spooky skeleton.

Little Princess Service Project

For my second Service project I chose Last Hope Rescue. I was able to collect cat litter, cat food both wet and dry, cat treats and cat toys and many more cat and kitty items. Since that’s what they were in need for at this time. I really enjoyed myself and was glad I was able to help.
