2018 Kick off Dinner

On August 8th, my royal sisters and I, attended the annual kickoff dinner at St. Patrick’s Church in Inver Grove Heights. It was a very nice evening filled with fun and cake!
We started the dinner out with the 2018 Royalty introductions and our dads walking us out to the head table, which was really special. We ate a yummy dinner and then the cakes and desserts were raffled off. The 2019 Miss Candidates did their sponsor presentations and the Junior and Miss walked the room with their ‘All About Me’ outfits on. My royal sister’s and I were knighted by King Boreas and I was pinned by the Queen of the Snows, which was really awesome. Our royalty portraits were given to us and turned out really pretty. We spoke at the end and said thank you to the program and families. I was pretty nervous and jumbled up some of my lines, but I got a good laugh from the crowd, so it turned out okay!

This is one of my favorite events, so it was so fun to attend. It also means that we are all getting closer to the end of our reign, which is a bit sad. We are making the most out of our last month and the Kickoff Dinner was another great opportunity to spend time together with the families and royal court.

Sponsor Visit

I got to meet with my sponsor, Rob from Hometown Meats. Being able to thank him in person for all he has done for the city of Inver Grove Heights and for me and the Inver Grove Heights Scholarship Program was really special. Without his support I would not have been able to achieve such amazing things through the program and to grow as an individual. I got to go down to the food truck and eat some really good food at Gertens. I had such a fun time. Thank you so much to Rob and Hometown Meats for their sponsorship.

2018 Jr Princess Service Project

For my second service project, I donated to the Animal Humane Society in Woodbury. I went door to door in my neighborhood to collect items from the AHS wish list. I collected  eight bags full of old towels, blankets, Kleenex, paper towels, and pet food. My mom helped me get 1,200 newspapers from the St. Paul Pioneer Press, and the AHS employees were very excited to see them all! I am so glad to have helped the animals by donating to the AHS.

2018 Service Project Miss Queen

For my second service project, I completed Relay for Life with my school! With my team, “Got Hope” we raised money for the American Cancer Society. I raised $200 towards my team’s goal of $1000. My school’s goal was $10,000, which we successfully raised! Aside from raising money, we spent the night at our school, on the turf, pulling an all-nighter, to signify that cancer never sleeps. It was so fun to rally with my friends and school, and get together with community members who are suffering or are survivors of cancer. I can not wait to volunteer with Relay for Life again, to honor those that I do and don’t know who are suffering from cancer

2018 Little Princess Sponsor Visit

On August 2nd, 2018 I visited my sponsor CBL Floors for the 2nd and final time. I gave my sponsor a Hershey bar for a gift as a Thank You for sponsoring  me. This was an added Thank You to my prior gift of a framed picture of when I was crowned and a candy dish. It was really fun to see my framed picture on their show room floor. I learned that my sponsor is really fun and supportive. They were there at my coronation when I was crowned and were really fun and nice to work with. It is really funny, that while visiting I learned I love hard wood floors!

2018 Service Project

As Little Miss Princess I finished up my 2nd service project. My service project was to collect hats, gloves, scarfs, winter coats and blankets to donate to the local Inver Grove Heights Fire Department. For a month I picked up donations from supporters in the community. After collecting everything I organized them into bins. I then delivered them to the fire department and helped carry in. The donations will be used throughout the community for families in need during the winter and fall cold months of Minnesota. I learned to be kind and give up things for people in need. I understand that families need help and don’t always have everything when they are having a hard time. I enjoyed doing this because I know that these items will be used for the good of the community. Visiting the fire station was lots of fun to see and I enjoyed meeting all the different fire fighters that work hard for our community to keep it safe.
Thank You,
Little Miss Princess Cheyanne

2018 Pan O Prog

On July 14th my Miss Inver Grove Heights royalty family went to their Pan O Prog parade. We went to an early event for visiting royalty and had lunch. We took pictures will all the royalty from other cities. After that we did their BIG parade and their was lots of people with new faces to see. It was a lot of fun to meet all the new people who support us and talk with all the royalty families. The parade was interesting because it was so long and there were lots and lots of people to wave at.
Thank You,
Little Miss Princess Cheyanne

2018 Jr Princess Service Project

For one of my service projects, I helped Neighbors, a social service agency providing emergency and supportive services in northern Dakota County. I collected more than 20 bags of clothes and shoes for their thrift store, The Clothes Closet, and about 10 bags of food and toiletries for the food shelf. I also volunteered for four hours at the food shelf, labeling all the food that came in, and four hours at the Clothes Closet, putting tags on clothes.
