Recently I was honored to represent the North Thompson Valley and Fall Fair at the Williams Lake Pageant Coronation. Unfortunately, North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo princesses Tianna Weninger and Cassandra Brown were unable to attend.

Along the way we stopped at the 108 Mile heritage site. The museum dates back to the late 1800s, and was transported from its original location to 108 Mile. The large house was preserved extremely well; still containing the wallpaper from the year it was built.

Upon our arrival in Williams Lake we enjoyed a dinner with some pageant committee members. We learned that one of the major areas they focus on is horsemanship.

I congratulate Terris Billyboy for being crowned Princess Williams Lake Stampede, and Alexis Forseille for being crowned Queen Williams Lake Stampede. I am sure they will represent their city, as well as the Williams Lake Stampede, with pride and enthusiasm.

I had an amazing time exploring the diverse and historical city of Williams Lake, and I hope to visit again soon!

I apologize for this being only our second report. However I can tell you that we have represented the North Thompson Valley at several different communities thus far, including Peachland, Logan Lake, Vernon, Chase and Kamloops, along with participating in many local community events. We much look forward to upcoming trips to Quesnel, Lytton and Merritt.


I extend a huge thank you to Sylvia Chivers for generously being my chaperone for the weekend.
