New Red Flannel royalty crowned

The Red Flannel Festival is officially underway, and the traditional crowning of the Red Flannel Queen is a big part of the excitement. This year was no different, as nine girls competed for the coveted title on Saturday, September 26, at Cedar Springs High School.

Crowned Queen this year was Bailey Nicole Lachniet, daughter of Jennifer and Derek Lachniet. Her court members are Megan Zinn, daughter of Ken and Carol Zinn; and Jessica Marie Plowman, daughter of Joe and Lisa Plowman. Megan Zinn was also voted Miss Congeniality.

Besides the queen and her court, this year’s Queen contestants included Sarah Kiander, daughter of Kevin and Shila Kiander; Katherine Krankall, daughter of Sarah Marcus; Ashlee Warlick, daughter of Greg and Laura Warlick; Tara Tepin, daughter of Jim and Michele Tepin; Nicole Von Seggern, daughter of Maribeth and Jeffrey Von Seggern; and Allie Alverson, daughter of Eric and Sonya Alverson.

According to Pageant Director Kaleigh Rosenberger, the pageant theme was the same as the Red Flannel Festival theme, “There’s a new sheriff in town,” and brought some country and western touches to the night. Master of Ceremonies was Micheal DeLano, a local radio personality, and Pageant hostess was 2005 Red Flannel Queen Samantha Heuwagen. Also adding to the evening was local Cedar Springs High School senior Kendyn Sarniak, who played his acoustic guitar and sang some popular country music. The Cedar Springs High School drama department assisted in making the show run smoothly.

“The stars of the evening, of course, were the nine ladies who took the stage in hopes of becoming our next Red Flannel Queen,” said Rosenberger. “As a director, I am very proud of each lady. They have been working so hard this summer and have constantly improved. It was a true pleasure working with them.”

The Queen and her court will appear at activities all throughout the Red Flannel Festival, and will represent the RFF at activities throughout the coming year. They will also each receive a portion of the scholarship money donated by community members to use for the college or continuing education of their choice.
