Welcome

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Kent and the 44th annual Kent Cornucopia Day’s celebration with a multitude of activities, entertainment and fun for the whole family. This year is very special as Kent is celebrating its 125th year since becoming a city in 1890. This year’s theme is “From Farming to Flying — 125 Years of Innovation”. From its roots in hops and lettuce farming to aerospace and high-tech Suzette Cooke manufacturing, Kent has come a long way since Mayor City of Kent incorporation, with nearly 124,000 residents making it the sixth largest city in Washington, and home to a culturally-fluent population who collectively speak 137 different languages. Kent’s Cornucopia Days is South King County’s oldest and largest festival featuring a full-size carnival and street fair with a wonderful array of booths offering a variety of items, delicious smells from the food court, and entertainment to capture your attention. The 15th annual Nelton Dsouza “Cornucopia Dragon Boat Races” will be held on President, Lake Meridian Park again this year, and don’t miss Kent Lions Club the parade!  And if robust physical activity is more your speed, the City’s Parks Department and the Kent Arts Commission will host the ever-popular Cornucopia Days 5K. We hope you will join us in acknowledging all the work they do to bring such a successful fun run to Kent year after year. An enthusiastic thank you to the Kent Lions who produce Kent Cornucopia Days each year. Their members and dedicated volunteers have devoted thousands of hours to planning and organizing this festival. They work hard to produce a successful event that appeals to all ages, groups and interests.  We are happy to have you join us in celebrating Kent Cornucopia Days.  The volunteers thank you for supporting all of the non-profit and charitable groups who depend on this great family festival.  Enjoy Cornucopia Days!

New for 2015 Children’s Activity Area Burlington Park – North End COME SEE THE LLAMAS ALL DAY Special Activities each day 10 am - 1 pm

Kent Historical Society Museum Since the early days of Kent, the community has come together to celebrate with a summer festival. Sometimes it was called “Ezra Meeker Days,” or sometimes the “Lettuce Festival.” To continue a family festival that binds the current generations to their past is one of three mission statements adopted by the renamed event known today as “Kent Cornucopia Days”. We encourage residents to reflect on Kent’s historical past. The Greater Kent Historical Society, which started in 1992, moved into the Historical Bereiter House in 1998. The house was built by Emil Bereiter in 1908. Emil was the owner of a lumber mill in the Covington area at the turn of the century. The 15-room house museum is furnished with period furniture that was donated by the people of Kent. Most of the museum displays what it was like to live in the Kent Valley around 1908. The Museum also has two “community rooms” where a wide variety of Kent stories are told. Today the house is used as an education to the past with exhibits displaying interesting artifacts, documents and photos. The Museum grounds feature well maintained flower gardens, the Carriage House, and a number of monuments including Stuart Nakamura’s “Another Place, Another Time” an outdoor work of art honoring Kent’s Japanese-American community. The mission of the Greater Kent Historical Society is to collect, preserve and promote the history of the Greater Kent area. Hours: The Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m. and by appointment. Admission is by a suggested $2 donation; no tickets are required for entrance to the Museum. The building can also be rented for small to medium sized events. 855 E. Smith Street, Kent, WA 98030 253-854-4330 www.gkhs.org

Information Booth & Headquarters The Kent Lions Kent Cornucopia Days “Information Booth” is located on the corner of 1st & Meeker. Stop here for any questions, directions, or help. You may also pick up a free Event Guide to the Kent Cornucopia Days. This booth is also known as “Mary’s Booth” honoring volunteer Mary Atwood’s many years of running this service. Stop here also for help, lost & found, first aid, police & fire contact, event communications, public service announcements and childcare station. The Kent Cornucopia Days “Festival Headquarters” is in Kent-Kherson Park at the corner of 2nd & Gowe. In addition, the “Lions Street Fair”, the Kent Farmers Market headquarters, sponsor headquarters, and the volunteer headquarters is at the same location. Additional police & fire contacts at the southwest corner of Railroad & Meeker, the carnival area, along with the police department on the corner of 4th & Gowe. The Funtastic Shows office is in the former Metro parking lot (where the carnival is located) near the corner of Smith & Lincoln Ave. The Dragon Boat Race headquarters are in Lake Meridian Park, and the Soccer “Cornucopia Cup” headquarters are at Petrovitsky Park, 16400 SE Petrovitsky.

Kent Lions Club, working in association with the City of Kent has produced The Cornucopia Days event in Kent for the past 44 consecutive years. The event has not only provided good family entertainment for the more than 200,000 attendees each year, but also has provided funding by which Kent Lions have been able to generously contribute to community projects and charities.

Dragon Boat Races Saturday July 11

Lake Meridian & Park

152nd Ave SE

SHORT BACKGROUND ON DRAGON BOAT RACING Dragon boat racing is people friendly, and takes into team’s people of varying degrees of athletic ability and physical limitations. Some teams are recreational, in condition, and others may be seriously athletic. Some others may be blind, survivors of disease such as cancer, have diabetes, and have other special needs. They learn about what they can achieve and do not allow themselves to be overwhelmed with any restrictions. They celebrate life by being actively engaged with it, and having a great time living it. The time spent in a dragon boat results in teams learning to work together in unison to race to the finish line first. The skills that are acquired have more to do with technique and synchronization, than brawn. Upper body strength is achieved in the gym and increased in the dragon boat, however. Dragon boats can go at a fast clip, rising upon the water, as paddlers do up to 90 strokes and more a minute, an amount for a well seasoned experienced team. In China a dragon boat team looks like an extremely fast perpetual motion machine. The lighter the weight, the more seasoned the paddlers, the faster they can go. The Kent Dragon Boat Association sent a team to Taiwan for the first time to participate in a Dragon Boat Festival in 2011 and sent another team in 2012. Practices take place Saturday mornings at 7:45 a.m. at the boat launch. Come join the fun!

The Lions and Miss Cornucopia Program

“It’s not a beauty contest. It’s about achievement, community service, and potential” Exactly when the Miss Cornucopia competition came into existence is not completely clear, but we can see evidence of the title “Miss Cornucopia” or “Cornucopia Queen” in old newspapers and in historical documents that lead back to the beginnings of the “Cornucopia Festival”, as it was called in the 1940’s. Others might argue that there was a Lettuce Queen for the “Lettuce Festival“ as Kent’s summer celebration was called, in the 1930’s. But, it is clear that the summer celebration in Kent has almost always

had a competition for recognition for young women in the community. The old timers tell of the Cornucopia Queen contest during the 1950’s and 1960s being a moneyraising affair in which organizations or

companies in Kent would nominate their own Cornucopia Princesses. Those organizations were then expected to sell tickets to act as votes for their Cornucopia Princess. The Cornucopia Queen got chosen by the amount of money their sponsor brought in to the committee. All of that changed in the early 1970’s. For a short period of years, in the late 60s and 70s there was no “Cornucopia” anything, no festival, no parade, no Miss Cornucopia. In the early 70’s, with a strong push from the Kent Lions, the summer festival was revived under the name “Meeker Days” and renamed to “Kent Cornucopia Days” in 1982. Along with that, a new “Miss Cornucopia” contest emerged. In its newer form, the contest took on a new purpose. Instead of raising money, it was about giving way money to outstanding young women from the community. For nearly three decades, the Miss Cornucopia Committee of the Kent Lions Club shadowed the “Miss Kent” competition, choosing their candidates from those vying for the Miss Kent title. The Lions looked for the one outstanding academic over-achiever among them. For that one individual, the Kent Lions would grant the title, “Miss Cornucopia” and give a college scholarship. Sometimes that winner would be Miss Kent. Other times, it might be a runner-up with a stronger scholastic background. That process was fairly simple, compared with today. “Tagging along with the ‘Miss Kent’ competition to pick out a really outstanding student and community service candidate from the people who appeared in the” Miss Kent” pageant worked really nicely for choosing our Cornucopia Queen, until the Miss Kent Contest folded up in 1997”, said Bill Westcott who was

Andrea Lanxon, Director of Miss Cornucopia Scholarship contest since 2005

Kent Cornucopia Days Director during that time, “that left us scratching our heads wondering if we were going to continue or if the Miss Cornucopia title would be gone forever.” But the Kent Lions did continue. In 1998, the Lions formed a separate non-profit named “The Kent Lions Foundation” for the express purpose of running a Miss Cornucopia Scholarship contest. “This whole Miss Cornucopia thing: It’s not a beauty contest, it’s about achievement, community service, and potential,” said Andrea Lanxon, the Miss Cornucopia Director and President of the Kent Lions Foundation. “We try to be as objective as possible in this process. The candidates come from a list of applicants. Originally, it could only be young women between the ages of 18 and 23. We make the final decision on Miss Cornucopia using a spreadsheet of numbers with each candidate receiving multiple scores from multiple judges chosen from teachers, principals, and business Continued on Page 21

leaders in the community. Those scores reflect an assessment of each candidate’s written essay, record of community service and the results of an interview. But, a big factor on that spreadsheet is academic achievement. We require sealed, high school and college transcripts. Those grades are heavily weighted. If you’re not in the top five percent academically, all the charm in the world will not win our competition.” Andrea “Andi” Lanxon is a 12-year veteran of the Miss Cornucopia Scholarship competition and came to the Director position in 2005 with a very well-qualified and focused background. She had joined the Kent Lions Club in 2003, the year after her own daughter, Alexandrea Conn, was chosen to be Miss Cornucopia. “Alex” as she is known, had graduated from Kent-Meridian High School in 2002 – with outstanding academic record, was chosen as Miss Cornucopia that year and went on to become SeaFair Princess in 2003. Alex used her Miss Cornucopia Scholarship of $3000 to help fund two bachelors degrees from Central Washington University, graduating Magna Cum Laude. She has since earned her masters degree from the University of Queensland in Australia. Alex lives in Kent today, and still helps with the Miss Cornucopia scholarship program each year. Andi Lanxon, herself, was a pageant contestant and winner in her youth, being chosen as a rodeo princess in the area where she grew up in Eastern Oregon. So, she has her own personal experience as a title contestant. As well, she has served as a volunteer pageant and competition judge for many years. “I joined the Lions Club and volunteered to work on the Scholarship program because of my own experience observing how the Miss Cornucopia contest did a real

straight-up quality promotion of outstanding, over-achieving young people in our community. We need to celebrate some of the truly outstanding young people. This is my way of doing it,’ said Lanxon, “Every Miss Cornucopia I have worked with has gone on to finish a college degree, some of them have masters degrees, now. Some have gone on to become SeaFair Princesses. One was chosen “Miss Washington”, and two of them work in broadcast news. They are all truly outstanding people.” The Miss Cornucopia contest has evolved over the past 17 years. For the first ten years, there was an on-stage public event in which each candidate would be quizzed, asked to speak publicly, and show some type of talent. In many ways, the contest mimicked the Miss Kent pageant which was discontinued in 1998. In later years, the pageant format was replaced by a panel

of judges who individually assess written evaluations, records of community service, and essays written by the contestants. Those scores are integrated with academic scores to come up with a numeric winner – as objective as possible. In 2014, for the first time, the Cornucopia Scholarship competition was opened up to allow young men to compete, as well. The new title “Cornucopia Ambassador” was created for those who would be named as a finalist. Tyler Wald was named the first “Cornucopia Ambassador” in 2014. Miss Cornucopia 2015, and her court, will be named at a ceremony at the Plaza Stage, at Town Square Plaza, Friday, July 10th at 2:00 P.M. The new Miss Cornucopia or Cornucopia Ambassador will be crowned by the reigning Miss Cornucopia, Mithula Rarmal. Mayor Suzette Cooke will announce the awards and winners.

Short History of

Kent Cornucopia Days The Kent Cornucopia Days has a long and historical presence in Kent.

During the years from 1939 through World War II, the Lettuce Festival disappeared, only to emerge again in 1946 as the Kent Cornucopia Festival. Cornucopia, which is Latin for “horn of plenty” and symbolized by the horn-shaped basket full of fruits and vegetables, was the festival’s new name because Kent had emerged as a producer of many farm crops besides lettuce and had a widely diversified agricultural base. The Cornucopia Festival existed in Kent until the mid-1950s. During the late-’50s and into the 1960s there was an on-again, off-again Cornucopia Home Show during the summer, which was organized by one of the Kent Lions. In 1969, the Cornucopia Home Show disappeared, and a festival reappeared but under the name Ezra Meeker Days in honor of Ezra Meeker, an early entrepreneur and farmer who first brought hops to the Kent Valley, which caused the farming economy to boom in the 1880s and 1890s. Meeker had run a business not far from the festival’s location decades earlier. Meeker Street in Kent still bears his name.

Kent Cornucopia Days, as we know it today, has a history as an on-again, off-again summer festival in Kent for more than 80 years. Beginning in the 1930s, as the Kent Lettuce Festival, the event was a cooperative effort of several community service organizations, led by Kent American Legion Post 15. The Kent Lions Club, which was originated in 1938, began an active role in the community festival beginning that year. The festival emphasized the valley’s cash farm crop of lettuce, the area’s main farm product in that period.

Continued from Page 26

When the Kent Lions took over stewardship and management of the summer festival in 1972, they shortened the name to simply Meeker Days. But, as many know, there was also a summer festival named Meeker Days (completely different event) in Puyallup. The first Meeker Days was a two-block street fair, located at the site where The Commons complex now exists at Smith Street and Fourth Avenue. In 1980, the Kent Lions renamed the Kent summer festival Cornucopia Days, thereby reverting to local tradition and relieving the confusion with the Puyallup festival. Then, in 1981, the Lions made another slight name change to Kent Cornucopia Days. That name has remained unchanged ever since. Each year since 1970, Kent Lions have produced this summer festival during early July, including a large street fair, parade, carnival and numerous athletic events, including soccer tournaments, skateboarding competitions, as well as 5K and 10K running events. In 2001, the Lions added a dragon boat racing event on Lake Meridian, which has grown to be the largest such race in the state and enabled a thriving community of dragon boating competitors in the city of Kent. Annually, more than 200,000 visitors attend various functions of Kent Cornucopia Days.

Ken and June Iverson named 2015 Kent Cornucopia Days “Old Timers” King and Queen Ken Iverson and June Cronyn Iverson are both 1947 graduates of Meridian High School in what is now Kent. They had both grown up on the East Hill and knew each other from an early age. But the story

is much more colorful than those simple facts. When Ken Iverson and June Cronyn returned to Meridian High for their senior year in 1946, seventeen-year-old June had already been crowned as a

“Cornucopia Princess” that summer for the “Cornucopia Festival” as it was named, for the first time when summer celebrations resumed after the Second World War. Ken, who was originally to have been in the class of ’44, had dropped out of high school and joined the US Navy when he was legally old enough to enlist. He served as a Navy aviation mechanic until he (and a few other American veterans) had won World War II. In 1946, he returned home to Kent and to his alma mater, Meridian High School to finish up. These high school sweethearts graduated together. They were married in Kent in 1949. They took up residence and started long careers in Kent. June worked for 30 years in banks in Kent, including many years at Peoples National Bank. Ken worked in sales for many, many years. He worked selling cars at Bowen Scarff Ford, and also for a number of

businesses that have since vanished. Ken and June Iverson currently live in Maple Valley. They have one daughter, Nancy who is married to former Kent City Councilman, Ron Harmon. They have one grandson and two great-grandchildren. An original Cornucopia Princess and her World War II veteran sweetheart will be in the Cornucopia Days Parade on Sunday, July 12 as the Kent Cornucopia Days “Old Timers” King and Queen.
