The cooler weather and leaves changing color not only mark the beginning of fall but also homecoming season for area schools. Lanesboro High School in Lanesboro, Minn. held coronation Monday, September 22, 2014, which brought many residents and visitors to the school’s gymnasium.

As the band played, keeping everyone entertained, the excitement grew until 7 pm when the program began. McKenzie Hanson, daughter of Lisa Benson and Bill Hanson, was master of ceremonies and began the program by introducing the royalty and crown bearers who all looked very nice in their suits and dresses.

Queen candidates were:

•Bailey Gartner, daughter of Tom and Mikki Gartner

•Alexis Jorgensen, daughter of Britt and Erin Amdahl and Matt Jorgensen

•Claire Peterson, daughter of Joe and Jody Peterson

•Rosie Jones, daughter of Lisa Jones

•Kelsey O’Koren, daughter of Joe and Jane O’Koren

King candidates were:

•Zach Voeltz, son of Dennis and Debby Voeltz

•Liam Dorn, son of Patty Wigg and David Dorn

•Matthew Luck, son of Ron and Shaune Luck

•Will Semmen, son of James and Brenda Semmen

•Kyle Lawstuen, son of David and Debby Lawstuen

Crown bearers were Jeweleanna Lidke, daughter of Holland Lidke and Barry Churchill, and Cooper Hovland, son of Mark and Kayla Hovland. The kids did a wonderful job performing their duties as crown bearers and enjoyed watching the skits along with the rest of the audience.

Before the King and Queen were crowned, the seventh through twelve grade each performed skits, which were quite comical. Winners of the skits were: first place - tenth grade, second place - seniors, and taking third place was the seventh grade.

Following the skits, the King and Queen were crowned. The Lanesboro High School Homecoming Queen is Claire Peterson and Homecoming King is Kyle Lawstuen. Both were very surprised and happy when last year’s King, Kole Ruud crowned each of them. Last year’s Queen, Regan Howerton, was unable to attend, so Ruud stepped in to crown both the King and Queen.

Many events were included throughout Homecoming week, including a Cross-Country Invitational at the Root River Golf Course, junior high football in Grand Meadow, Minn., junior high volleyball at home versus Spring Grove, B squad football in Grand .....
