MLAO: ‘Turning over a new shamrock’


The Maple Lake Ambassador Organization committee consists of (from left) Vicki Johanneck, Leah Ortiz, Amanda Oaks, Ebony Ortiz, Jacki Holm, Lynn Kissock and Stefanie Merz (not pictured).

 

Thousands of people will visit Maple Lake on Saturday, March 15, for the 37th annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival. Many of those people will make their way to the coronation of the Maple Lake Ambassadors.
What some of those people may not realize is the amount of behind-the-scenes work needed to pull off the event. That’s where the seven members of the Maple Lake Ambassador Organization committee come into play.
“Everything you see that has to do with the ambassadors, someone on the committee did something to make it happen,” committee chair Stefanie Merz said.
More information appears in this week's Messenger.
