Kent named Fire Queen

Scandinavia Corn Roast set for Aug. 2-4

By Holly Neumann

Madison Kent will reign as Fire Queen for the 2019 Scandinavia Corn Roast.

The corn roast will be held Friday through Sunday, Aug. 2-4.

“I was very surprised to be selected,” said Kent. “I am excited to be able to help out and represent the amazing fire department our community has.”

Kent has many fond memories of the corn roast weekend.

“Every year, my family has a get together Saturday night of the corn roast, and we all eat corn for breakfast Sunday morning – a tradition I intend on keeping,” she said. “I hope everyone comes to the corn roast and enjoys all it has to offer.”

As fire queen, she will sell raffle tickets all day on Saturday, Aug. 3 and at the firemen’s ball.

The drawing for prizes will be held on Saturday night.

“The corn roast is important because it raises money for our local volunteer fire department, which helps get new equipment or helps with equipment upkeep,” Kent said. “It also brings the community together by providing things for people of all ages to enjoy.”

The daughter of Dave and Stacey Kent, she is a 2019 graduate of Iola-Scandinavia High School.

In the fall, Kent will attend Fox Valley Technical College.
