A royal tradition is about to wrap up its 60th year in Vernon.

The Queen Silver Star Excellence Program is coming to a close with the Proclamation of Queen Silver Star LX on Thursday, Feb. 6 at 7 p.m.

The event is the culmination of the program which began in August with six candidates. These young ladies have taken part in a variety of weekly courses, including speech, money management and even automotive. They have since showed their poise and presentation skills at the Fashion Show and Talent Showcase.
