Hammond woman named 'North Wind Princess'
When the crown was placed on her head, Jill Volkert said she was so shocked she didn't know what to do for a moment. Volkert was crowned 2013 Princess of the North Wind on Friday, Jan. 25 during the St. Paul (Minn.) Winter Carnival.
"I'm so excited to be a part of the Winter Carnival family," Volkert said.
Volkert, a native of White Bear Lake, Minn., now lives in her husband's (Bill Volkert's) native Hammond. She said she received a series of congratulations from home.
