The ambassadors are putting away their tiaras after a hectic schedule.

Arrow Lakes Ambassadors retire after busy year

After a year of hard work and traveling around B.C. the Arrow Lakes Ambassador Team has retired.

After a year of hard work and traveling around B.C. the Arrow Lakes Ambassador Team has retired. The Arrow Lakes Ambassador Team consisted of First Ambassador Whitney Shkuratoff, Second Ambassador Danielle Aeichele, Third Ambassador Kylie Gardner and Miss Congeniality Chelsea Fisher.

Family and visiting royalty from Chase, New Denver, Trail and Logan Lake gathered in Nakusp June 23 for dinner, farewell speeches and a slide show of activities prepared by the Ambassador team.

The Ambassadors travelled to Kamloops, Oliver, Barriere, Peachland, Logan Lake, Vernon, Chase, Trail, New Denver, Castlegar and Merritt for the B.C. Ambassador pageant.

In Nakusp you may have seen them in the Nakusp and Area Community Foundation Jail and Bail, marching with the Legion on Remembrance Day, in the Santa Claus parade, selling 50/50 tickets during the Winter Fest weekend and during the Midget Rep. Provincial playoffs, selling Daffodils for the Canadian Cancer Society, at the Drop-In Bingo or serving dinner to the Legion Ladies Auxiliary.

The Arrow Lakes Ambassador Committee would like to thank the parents and chaperones for all their help over this past year with various functions. The Committee would also like to thank the community for all your continued support of our program.

Though there were no candidates to participate for the 2012/13 pageant year, we look forward to continuing the program in years to come.
