The crowd was on its feet Friday night when Ella Meyer received royal treatment with the title of Miss Trail and a 14-pound crown to match the heavy duty of acting as ambassador for the next year. Alongside, Samantha Theobald will proudly represent the City of Trail as Trail Princess, judges decided at the 2014 Miss Trail Pageant.
The two 16-year-old friends were in shock after the show, admitting that participating in the Trail Ambassador Program was a journey on its own.
The five candidates (Meyer, Theobald, Vivian Huang, Monica McPhee and Alyssa Hunt) must have brought their entourage with them if the full house at the Charles Bailey Theatre was any indication.
Michelle Epp, program coordinator, and Bev Benson, pageant coordinator, surprised Trail Mayor Dieter Bogs with a special plaque in commemoration of his years of support for the program and well wishes for his nearing retirement from municipal politics.
