2014 Candidates For Loggers Jamboree Royalty

NORTH FORK – The Loggers Jamboree Queen and Court contest is a fundraiser for the Summer Youth Program at the Recreation Center.

Sponsored by the North Fork Boosters, the money raised provides the children of this mountain community a fun and safe place to gather during those long hot summer days. It also provides free lunch and a lifeguard in the swimming area.

Last year’s Mid-Sierra Loggers Jamboree Queen was Rebecca Moisa, who will be passing on her title at the Woodchopper’s Ball on Saturday night.

The contestant in each category who sells the most pre-sale tickets to the Jamboree is crowned Loggers Jamboree Queen and Little Logger. The winners’ responsibilities include volunteering their time at the Jamboree and the Lions Club Pancake Breakfast, and promoting the following year’s events.
