Queen Silver Star the 57th

Jordynne Tomiak

There are simply not enough words to describe how truly grateful I feel to have been given this opportunity. This past year has been one filled with great memories and many adventures. I cannot thank the community of Vernon enough for their constant support. To be an Ambassador for our city has been remarkable. Having the opportunity to meet and get to know fellow Ambassadors was something that I will always remember and the connections that I made are something that I will cherish forever. I could not have started this chapter in my life without the support from my sponsor, Designers Gallery, Pippa Forrester. I truly cannot thank you enough! Thank you to all of the businesses that helped to support the program, your efforts are very much appreciated. Princess Meghan Townley, I am so happy to have spent this past year and a half with you and all of the memories made, I wish you all the best in the future.

To my grandparents, I am so happy to have had all of your support. I really don't know what I would do without you all. Thank you. To my sister Kendall, who no matter what always has words of wisdom for me, but don't worry Kendall, we all still know you really rule the family. To my parents, I truly do not know where to begin. Your love and support has been endless and I am so thankful to have you two by my side. I couldn't be more proud to be your daughter.

Thank you for the pep talks and always being there for me. This year has been a phenomenal experience and I am very excited to see what the future holds.

Saying that,

I am and forever will be Queen Silver Star LVII Jordynne Tomiak

"We don't remember days, we remember the  moments"

This year has flown by and has left me with some of the most amazing memories and opportunities I've ever had. I guess the sayings true, time flies when you're having fun. Through this year, I have had the privilege of not only representing the community at local events but I had a busy summer of travelling BC, giving me the opportunity to represent Vernon province-wide. I am so grateful to the community of Vernon for making my year and a half so memorable. You welcomed me as an Ambassador and gave me an immense amount of support. I gained understanding for how much the people in our community work together to create the beautiful  city we live in. When  I was crowned  last year, everyone warned me about taking in every moment because it'll be over before you know it. At  the  time I thought it was impossible, but now I can truly say it goes by in a blink  of an eye.

This journey that began a year and a half ago wouldn't have been possible without the help from my amazing sponsor, Kal Rotary. The support that Donna, Mary, and her husband Gene, gave me was a huge help in making my dreams come true. Your unconditional  love,  made  my  candidacy  truly unforgettable.
Donna, your heart for giving is one thing I appreciated so incredibly much last year, and you were always there to help with projects and events. Mary and Gene thank you for having open arms at every event, and for opening your home to me to help with my project building needs. The support you all gave me allowed my candidacy, and royalty year, to become an unforgettable time. I loved every moment of representing your club and I am forever grateful that you believed in me.

Thank you to the Queen's Committee for all your hard work and dedication. I can't imagine the hours of prep you need to organize our crazy schedules, but on top  of  that, you found time to be there with us. To my family, thank you so much for  working with my sporadic scheduling and always being my number  one supporters. You gave me reality checks when I needed them, and the pep talks to help me succeed with any life decisions I made. I am truly appreciative of the acceptance and support you have given me this year. I really couldn't have done any of this without you. I love you. My friends, thank you for your never ending understanding and support you've given me as I have tackled this chapter of life. You never kept track of the times I have had to cancel plans due to an event that pops up and you allow me to reschedule when I can. You are truly forgiving, and I am so thankful for each one of you. Thanks for being there always, you are the best!

To my partner in crime, Jordvnne. Thank you for making my year one to remember. I could not imagine my year spent with anyone else. Good luck to you and all your future endeavors, I know you will rock anything you put your mind to.

Now to our 7 amazing candidates, hold your head up tall and take in every memory possible. Take the time to speak with the little kids who see your sparkly crown and believe you are a "real" princess, because these memories will forever stick with you. You are all strong, confident young ladies and I am so proud that I have had the chance to spend time with you. You will all succeed in your own personal ways. Good luck to all of you.

As my year has come to an end, I can say I am truly thankful for this opportunity to represent the beautiful city of Vernon that I am so lucky to call home. The memories and friends that I have made will last forever.

With that being said, I am and forever will be, Princess Silver Star LVII, Meghan Townley.
