Jubilee Days royalty - 1956

Jun 4, 2017 From staff reports

As summer neared in 1956, Riverton prepared for the biggest community event in its history. The town was turning 50 years old, and everyone was celebrating. Coming up in June was the first of several "old-timers" events, an all-day ice cream social at City Park, to which all original Riverton pioneers from 1906-16 were invited. As many as 200 residents from that time period were known to still be living in Riverton, which was founded Aug. 15 1906.

Part of the "Golden Jubilee Days" observance was the selection of three Jubilee Queens, and all three were on hand for the old-timers day. They were prominent figures the entire summer as events continued.

Sis Krause was the Jubilee Days Queen, with Shirley Layton and Barbara Dudley her two attendants.
