The 2014-2015 Oakdale Royalty were crowned at a coronation ceremony at Guardian Angels Catholic Church on Wednesday, June 18 during the 31st annual Summerfest.

Megan Williams, 15, was crowned the Oakdale royal princess. Fellow members of the 2014-2015 Oakdale royal court include princesses Rachel Danko, 17, Kaylee Barber, 10, Alexis Greengard, 9, Natalia Roeser, 9, Destiny Dukart, 7, Giana Kielsa, 7 and Savanna Roth, 7, and princesses-in-training Freya Jensen, 7, Livia Jungmann, 7, Cosette Willis, 6, Abigail Greengard, 5, Bella Boyd, 3, and Saige Jungmann, 3.

Oakdale Royalty represent the city at events throughout the state, including parades. Although the girls weren’t able to participate in the Ted Bearth Grande Parade this year due to its cancellation, they will be appearing in other parades in the area this summer, including the White Bear Avenue Parade on Wednesday, July 9. All in all, they will polish their princess waves at 22 parades between now and November.

Royalty keep busy throughout the year with a number of volunteer service events, including hosting bingo at local senior living homes and ringing bells for the Salvation Army. This year’s royalty have already collected nonperishable food items for the local food shelf during Summerfest and will be spending two more weekends going door-to-door collecting food this summer. They also participated in Summerfest’s annual 5K run/walk.
