2012 National Cherry Festival launched
Mayor of Young Stuart Freudenstein officially launched the 2012 National Cherry Festival this week at a cocktail party attended by interested citizens.
Among those in the crowd were two candidates in the upcoming cherry queen competition and the quest’s co-ordinator, Lenore Schiller.
2011 National Cherry Queen Ellie Caldwell and 2011 National Cherry Charity Queen Katie Blair were present.
Also in attendance were supporters of the candidates, some sponsors of the 2012 event, councillors and members of the National Cherry Festival committee.
Councillor Freudenstein spoke with enthusiasm about the upcoming festival, which will be held from Friday November 30 to Sunday December 2 this year.
He said plans were progressing well for this year’s festival, congratulated the queen candidates on their commitment and predicted the 2012 event would be a real winner once again this year.
