The annual Red Flannel Prince and Princess contest was held Wednesday, September 25, at the historic Kent Theatre in Cedar Springs. According to Chair Anna Nozkowski, 25 kindergarteners participated in the contest, and winners were Deagan Pike, of Cedar Trails Elementary, and Grace Middlebrook, of Creative Technologies Academy.
Len Allington, of the Kent Theatre, was presented with a plaque for his outstanding service to the Festival. He was reportedly 100 percent surprised and touched by the gesture. “He has opened his doors to us for many years, and has always been gracious about lending his time,” said Nozkowski.
