The Riverside Centre Theatre was the sight of the 2014 Youth Ambassador Talent Night and Apron Auction on Thursday, June 5 at 7 p.m.

Emcees for the occasion were Friendship Ambassador Morgan Whelpton and B.C. Ambassador Candidate Megan Pateman. Judges for the talent portion of the show were Gail Madill, Donna Wilson and Sandi Lawlor.

The evening began with a whimsical dance number which included Princeton Ambassadors, Destiny Earle and Carmen Brodie, Friendship Ambassador Morgan Whelpton and BC Ambassador candidate, Megan Pateman. Joining in were their ‘Brownie Buddies’, Aivry Thomas, Hanna Zirk, Kabrie Hartwell, Mya Robbins and Shaelin Tomusiak.

Next on the venue was the talent show, where the Ambassador candidates showed their stuff.

First up, was Copper Mountain Mine Ambassador Candidate, Owen Barlett, who sang his rendition of “I’m Still Here.” During the auction, Owen’s apron, which was entitled ‘Riptide’ sold for $30. Next to entertain the crowd was Princeton Lions’ Club Ambassador candidate, Alex Burke, who played “The Watermill” on clarinet. Her apron, ‘Puns’ sold for $200 during the auction. Weyerhaeuser Ambassador candidate, Kassidy McCutcheon, played “Lean On Me” on the piano. Her apron ‘All Tied Up’ brought in $100 at auction.  Princeton Rotary Club Ambassador candidate Zach Jwaszko performed a brownie buddy public reading of bedtime stories, surrounded by all five brownie buddies, who each got to choose their favorite story. Zach’s apron, ‘Little Red Riding Hood’ brought in $70 at auction. During the apron auction, Ambassador Destiny Earle’s apron, ‘Stained Glass’ brought in $40. Ambassador Carmen Brodie’s ‘Grillmaster’, $60 and Friendship Ambassador, Morgan Whelpton’s ‘Spiderman’ creation, brought in $60.  All proceeds from the apron auction go back into the Ambassador program.  Dean Stinson, who generally performs as auctioneer, was unable to attend the event this year, so the position was handed over to Lori Thomas.

The Princeton Youth Ambassador program coordinator, Lori Thomas, would like to thank stage manager, Josh Herzog and door hostesses, Destiny Earle and Carmen Brodie. They would also like to thank the Princeton Arts Council for the use of the grand piano used during talent night.

Join them at the Ambassador Coronation, which will be held Friday, June 27 at the Riverside Centre following the Princeton Rotary Club parade. Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
