2017 Service Project

My second community service project as a Miss Inver Grove Heights Ambassador was a fundraising sale dedicated to the Alzheimers Association. This organization is important because it brings awareness to a life changing illness, and helps fund the research necessary to find a cure for this disease. This project involved me collecting, organizing, and advertising items for this 3 day long sale which took place June 8-10th. I collected items from family members and local neighbors and then had to label prices on all items in order to sell them. After collecting the items I distributed flyers at local community centers including the Inver Glen Library, the Inver Grove Heights Anytime Fitness and throughout the roads of Inver Grove. The event had a great turnout and I am excited to announce I raised 200$ to donate to the Alzheimers Association and I was even able to bring all unsold items to the Goodwill in West St Paul for donation to benefit the local community.

2017 Junior Miss Princess Fort Snelling Service Project

For my second service project I was able to help out with Flags for Fort Snelling and put out the flags on Memorial day. My mom’s great uncle was killed in action during the Korean war, but he wasn’t found and buried for 58 years, so this was special to my family to be able to honor the military people. I also have my uncle and great grandma buried at Fort Snelling. I invited some family and friends to help with the event.  It was a great experience seeing all the people that came out to help and being able to honor to the heroes who have fallen for our freedom.

2017 South St. Paul Candidate Showcase

On Thursday, June 1st, my royal sisters Ally, Megan and I were able to attend the South St Paul Kaposia Days Candidate Showcase.  It was really fun the candidates had to make a dish and give the recipe, for something from their heritage or childhood.  My favorite was the gingersnaps and the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. It was fun seeing all the other royal families again.

2017 Good Samaritan Brunch

Before brunch started I walked around with the other royal girls and we mingled with people.Once the food was ready we sat down and ate, it was really good. As we were eating there was a live band, they were really talented. Once we were done eating we helped pass out the prizes and baskets of the winners and highest bidders. Overall this brunch was really fun and delicious.

2017 Inver Grove Heights Easter Egg Hunt

On Saturday April 8th my royal family and I were able to attend the Inver Grove Heights Easter Egg Hunt. The event was held at the Rich Valley Park soccer fields. We were expecting it to be a warm April day but it ended up being cold, windy and overcast. But that didn’t stop all the kids from coming out and having fun! There were three fields filled with eggs for different age groups. My royal sisters and I were able to sound that starting horn for each field. It was so much fun watching all of the kids rush out after the eggs. Each field ended up having a golden egg. The lucky hunter who found the golden egg was given an extra prize. Even though the weather wasn’t perfect it was still a really fun day!
