Lake’s royalty keep busy

It has been five months since Kirsten, Sidney and I have been crowned as the Cowichan Lake Ambassadors, and we are loving every minute.

Crystal Bell Lady of the Lake

It has already been five months since Kirsten, Sidney and I have been crowned as the new Cowichan Lake Ambassadors, and we are loving every minute of it.

We have already attended three parades, the Sidney Canada Day parade, Duncan Days and the Youbou Regatta.

We have also been to three pageants; we were lucky enough to travel to Merritt and watch our own Mary Batyi be crowned as one of three BC Ambassadors, as well as attending the Peachland and Nanaimo pageants.

Travelling is definitely one of our favourite parts about the program; we get to see and experience new places and people around B.C.

The Lady of the Lake program has given us the opportunity to learn about other Ambassador programs, their towns and traditions; we have also become much more aware of our own community.

We absolutely love helping out when asked. We’ve assisted at the Chamber of Commerce Small Business Showcase, have been part of the Remembrance Day ceremonies and hope to see you all at the Chamber of Commerce Christmas parade on Sunday, Nov. 29!

Your 2015/2016 Lady of the Lake Ambassador Team, Crystal Bell, Lady of the Lake, Kirsten Mackie, 1st Princess, Sidney Fothergill, 2nd Princess.
