Apple Blossom royalty visits state Capitol
The 2014 Apple Blossom court, chosen just a couple weeks ago, visited the state Capitol yesterday to be recognized by state lawmakers and promote the Apple Blossom Festival in Wenatchee.
Apple Blossom Queen Roslyn Thompson, Princess Caroline Dahl and Princess Nikara Morgan traveled to Olympia and visited with 12th District Reps. Cary Condotta and Brad Hawkins; the Assistant Secretary of State Ken Raske and Chief Justice Barbara Madsen of the Washington State Supreme Court. They also had the chance to speak before the Senate, be honored in the House and take a tour of the Capitol building. They were chaperoned by Pat and Adele Haley and Lori Reed.
“The Apple Blossom Royal Court coming to Olympia has been a long-standing tradition,” said Condotta, R-East Wenatchee. “It is a great experience for the royal court, and is a reminder to all legislators how important our fruit industry is to Washington state.”
“These young women not only represent a bright future for our state, but they are great role models and representatives of Central Washington,” said Hawkins, R-East Wenatchee. “I was pleased to meet the court and I know their time here in Olympia promoting the festival was productive.”
The young women will also be featured in Rep. Hawkins’ weekly video update – click the photo below to watch:
