Keremeos’ new Ambassador program’s contestants  held their first event at the Elks Hall on Friday, March 28.

An afternoon tea was held, allowing the three ladies vying for the first ever Keremeos Ambassador title an opportunity to introduce themselves to the public.

Selena   Nugteren,Tèa Hartfield and Jamie Forner gave brief speeches to the 50 plus people in attendance. Each candidate spoke to the significance of their sponsors, as well as describing their aspirations in pursuit of the ambassador’s title.

After the speeches, a tea social with a cake and cupcake auction was held. In addition to donations at the door, the ladies raised $709 to go towards future Ambassador activities.

Royalty from Princeton, Oliver  and Osoyoos were also present, offering their support to the village’s new program.

One of the three ladies will be chosen to represent the village at social and special occasion functions during a pageant on the weekend of May 10, just in time for the Keremeos Rodeo.
