The 2002 Greater Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce's Fourth of July Queen and the Royal Court were announced Wednesday evening at the Queen's Coronation event at the Cape Fox Lodge.

Borough Mayor Jack Shay was present to start off the evening's program by introducing the co-chairs, Carla Claasen and Renee Woodell. Carla Claasen thanked the merchants of Ketchikan for their generous support of the contestants. Over $4,500 in cash and prizes were showered upon the six contestants. The six contestants raised over $6,500 to support Ketchikan's fireworks display and the 4th of July parade.

The Royal Court will ride on the Queen's 4th of July parade float that is sponsored by the Greater Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce. This year's float is dedicated to Helen Hendricks who organized the Ketchikan Queen's contest for about 50 years.

Class of '82 President Debbie A. Merle said approximately 75 out of the 157 graduates of the Ketchikan High School Class of 1982 are in town celebrating their 20th graduation anniversary. She said that about half the Class of '82 still live in Ketchikan.

Today, some of members of the Class of '82 gathered to decorate their float for the 4th of July parade. Cheerfully it was commented that before the Class of '82 began decorating their float this morning, they first had a spelling lesson. Earlier, the Class of '82 had raised their banner at the downtown tunnel with the word 'afraid' misspelled - which they have corrected.
