Lilly Workman and Susie Rieber were crowned this year’s Maple Lake Ambassadors, Saturday, March 17 at a coronation ceremony following the St. Patrick’s Day parade.
Workman was also named Miss Congeniality.
The two were selected from among four candidates in front of a large crowd in the Maple Lake High School Auditorium including Minneapolis Aquatennial Royalty and retiring Maple Lake Ambassadors Chloe Riviere, Jennifer Malwitz, and Alexus Jackson.
Maple Lake Mayor Lynn Kissock served as moderator of the event. A few tears were shed as last year’s royalty said their goodbyes and handed their duties over to the incoming ambassadors.
Aquatennial representatives also took the opportunity to invite Alexus Jackson to represent Maple Lake at the 2018 Minneapolis Aquatennial in July as a retiring ambassador.
