Serving as Junior Princess in 1965 Was a Highlight of Her Life

My parents always took us to the parade. I was four years old -- and since Oregon was celebrating the bi-centenial -- I was dressed up in a "Little House on the Prairie" style outfit. A clown came by and took me by the hand and we went skipping up the street with the rest of the parade before he returned me to my parents.

The Rose Festival was always a fun-filled time of the year for me, but became even more so when I was selected as the Junior Princess from District 8 in 1965. That's still one of the highlights of my life!

It was so much fun and such an honor. I only wish that young girls still had the same opportunity I did.
