It’s almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the air, along with some good old-fashioned fun, as over 60 cast members take the stage tonight at Cedar Springs High School for their winter musical, Beauty and the Beast. 

This classic tale is a charming love story about a young woman (Belle) who falls in love with a beast, who happens to be a prince placed under a spell. In order to escape the spell, the Beast must learn to love and be loved. If he doesn’t learn this before time runs out, he and his home will be under the spell forever.

Thirteen Cedar Springs area juniors vied for the title of 2013 Red Flannel Queen last Saturday evening, September 28, at Cedar Springs High School. Winning this year’s top honor was Alexis Lucarelli, daughter of Brett and Nikki Lucarelli. Her 2013 Red Flannel Court includes two Hannah Sommer, daughter of Charles and Joelene Sommer, and Julianne Schut, daughter of Joel and Chris Schut.

“All the girls did a fabulous job and we could tell each one of them worked so hard throughout this whole process,” said 2nd Vice President Anna Nozkowski. “They looked beautiful as they graced the stage in their gowns and business attire. Very charming and sweet young ladies.”

This year’s pageant director was the 2007 Red Flannel Queen Kaleigh Rosenberger. “She did a wonderful job,” remarked Nozkowski. “It was very well organized and put together.”

The pageant was fun and entertaining for both the audience and the contestants. Nozkowski said one of the highlights of the evening was a local group from The Springs Church, who sang a funny song called, “We are the pirates who wear Red Flannels.”

The Queen and her court will all receive scholarship money for being chosen to represent the Red Flannel Festival. Donations for the Scholarships given to the winners will be received until June 2014. Please send your tax‐deductible donation to RFF Queen Scholarship Fund, PO Box 43, Cedar Springs, MI 49319 or go online to their website donate through PayPal.
