Country Grocer's Lauren Frost wins 2014/15 Lady of the Lake contest

A jubilant and emotional Lauren Frost was crowned the new Lady of the Lake for 2014/2015 this past Saturday.

As the sun shone down gloriously on this year’s Lake Days weekend, Frost took to centre stage to receive the crown from last year’s Lady of the Lake Megan Berry.

“Thanks so much to everyone who has supported me, to all my family and friends,” said Frost on Saturday. “Thank you also to the eight other girls for making this experience so amazing. And to my amazing sponsor Country Grocer, without them this would not have been possible. I’m so thankful for everything and I’m excited to continue the friendships with my fellow candidates.”

Frost also specifically thanked her colleagues at Country Grocer, where she works, for giving her the time off to pursue the dream of becoming Lady of the Lake over the past few months.

Prior to handing over the crown, Berry said she was very proud of all of the candidates this year and how far they’ve come on their Lady of the Lake journeys.

Also, Madisyn Young sponsored by the BPO Elks was crowned 1st Princess and Marigold Arbic, sponsored by Island Savings Credit Union, was crowned 2nd Princess.

Both girls broke down in tears of happiness as they were handed their respective crowns.

“I’d like to thank all of my family and sponsor, as well as all of you guys for being here today,” said Young.

Arbic was every bit as appreciative for those who have supported her along the way.

“I’d like to thank all of my family for being here as well as my amazing sponsor for making it possible. It means so much,” she said.
