Two a half inches ot rain hi 12 hours caused the celebra- tion to be spread over three days instead of two. This year's M a r d i Gras Queen is Paula Zielke of Fore- most, sponsored by Foremost Lions Club. Karen Elliott of Warner, sponsored by Writing-on-Stene Biding Association, was second and Sherry Lee of Shortgrass Beef Club third. Others taking part were Karen Haimling spon- sored by Foremost Elks; Dian- r.a Scbatz of the Royal Cana- dian Legion; and Marlene Chesney of the F.tzikom Roping Club. The parade, held over one day, was one of the biggest and bek ever seen in Foremost. The rodeo finals went on in the afternoon in an arena with more than a foot of mud. This added to the difficulties of the cowboys, but added to the en- joyment of the spectators. Calves were almost impos- sible to turn with legs totally buried in the mire. Cowboys took many unceremonious falls from surprisingly agile broncs and bulls. Lions club president and ro- deo announcer Vern Arnold brought the crowd to its feet as he showed he was rat all talk by riding one of the bulls after OFFICIAL OPENING G H SERVICE AUTOMOTIVE REPAIRS DOWNTOWN QUINN BUILDING, MILK RIVER SATURDAY, JUNE 27th to 5 p.m. COFFEE AND DONUTS SERVED YOUR HOSTS GLEN ELLERT and HARVEY LESLIE the final event.
