Blast from the Past: A look at our March 2, 1983 Bashaw Star front page found this gem of a photo. It features newly crowned Klondike Queen Miss Tammy Imbery. She was crowned the Donalda Klondike Queen for 1983 after the Donalda Klondike Nites event, Saturday, Feb. 26. As it says in the caption there was a large crowd on hand to watch the crowning. Other contestants for the pageant included Judy Green, Sandy Sanderson, Carol Frank, Lorraine Sampson, and Belinda Purves. There was also a lucky winner of $1,000 and that was Holly Komishke, also of Donalda. Star photo
