6-Algono (la.) Upper DM MolnM THURSDAY, OCT. 20, 1966 Norma Harms Named As Burt Homecoming Queen Homecoming at Burt this year was unavoidably held on two different days. Because of a sudden deluge of rain on Friday the Homecoming parade was held on Monday afternoon. Also due to rain and disagreeable weather half-time activities, including the crowning of the Queen, were omitted. Norma Harms, a very active and busy senior girl, was crowned Homecoming Queen during a ceremony at the Homecoming dance following the game. Relinquishing the crown and robe to Norma was Nancy Becker, last year's Queen. Attendants to Queen Norma, also all senior girls were Charlene Lappe, Nancy Ackerman and Linda Meyer. Norma, who is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Jesse Harms, rural Burt, was also the Queen candidate at the Swea City Farm Festival Days. Norma has been a member of the Burt marching and concert bands, a member of the girls' glee club, small vocal groups, class officer, band officer and cheerleader. She is also a member of the F. T. A. and many other activities. She attends the Burt Presbyterian church where she sings in the choir and is active in senior high youth organizations. Pictured are (left to right), Charlene, Queen Norma, Nancy and Linda. Judges for the parade were Rev. Bruce Calbreath, Mrs. Maree Bahnson and Mrs. Marie Wilson.
