Throughout the year the Cherry Queen will be required to attend and participate in numerous events. All appearances are scheduled, arranged, and supervised by the Queen’s Committee or designated agent so as to reflect the values and high standards of the program and to enhance its visibility within our community, state, and nation. The 1st runner-up will have no continuing obligations. Only in the event that the Queen is unable to finish her reign will she be called upon.
