A royal thank you

I would like to thank the Lions Club and Lorna Vomacka for sponsoring me in the Lady of the Lake, and the Cowichan Lake Lady of the Lake Society for a great program, especially Denise Allan for all her hard work.

I would also like to thank my family and all the candidates, I love you all.

I am looking forward to a great year.

Desiree Karlsen
