No more royalty? Miss Heritage pageant may be ending
New Richmond's royal court appears to be fading away again.
After the New Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce dropped its backing of the Miss New Richmond pageant in 2003, the community was without a reigning queen and her court for a couple years.
But in the fall of 2005, a committed committee of supporters vowed to revive the local royalty idea. They partnered with the New Richmond Heritage Center and crowned the first Miss Heritage.
It lasted for a while.
