Just coronated during West Seattle Hi-Yu‘s holiday party at St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church: The new Hi-Yu Junior Court! In our photo, from left, are Queen Bianca Carufel, and Princesses Callie McFadden and Sadie Botuchis. The community group made some changes this year; instead of a mid-summer coronation during the Hiawatha Fun Fest, the application, judging, and coronation were moved to fall. Boys were also invited to apply for the first time, but the seven candidates at tonight’s event were all girls. They were joined by the past Junior Court for this photo, also featuring 2011 Junior Court Queen Taylor Nichols (second from left), who emceed:
Next up – time to choose the Senior Court; applications are due December 20th, and you can find the form on the Hi-Yu website.
