The Chewelah Float won the Lilac Sweepstakes Award at the Armed Forces Torchlight Parade on May 18 for best overall community float. Pictured are Distinguished Young Women representatives Naomi Miller, Patti Hernandez, and Josie Mott with escorts Noah RIchmond, Logan Holtsclaw, and Will Londagin. Although the float experienced some technical issues and had to be towed along the Spokane parade route, the award was happily received. It is the second year in the row for the Chewelah Float to win the award. Geri Trudeau photo
