The Tradition Continues: 63rd Apple Blossom Cotillion Underway!

The 63rd Apple Blossom Cotillion is almost four months away, but the hard work for its participants began on Sunday, January 6th, at Riverside Gymnasium in Springfield and will continue every Sunday until the big night on May 4th.

13 high school senior girls and their chosen escorts will be joined by 21 elementary school couples at this year’s Cotillion.

The musical theme for this year’s production is inspired by the television show "Glee" and will feature songs that were performed on that show.

The high school senior girls who will be competing for the title of Apple Blossom Queen are: Emily Barr, Brooke Bennett, Bailie Carey, Paige Congdon, Hannah Crosby, Morgan Fontaine, Saby Hernandez, Cierra Howe, Mykahla Jasinski, Morgan Naumann, Meghan Power, Ashley Quelch, and Haley St. Louis.

Pam Church and Carrie Jewell return as the directors of the Cotillion. They will be assisted by Tracy Austin, Robin Keefe, and Kyla White. Larry Kraft will be the event’s master of ceremonies for the 19th consecutive year.

The Apple Blossom Cotillion is a fund raiser for Springfield Hospital. The proceeds from this popular evening of community entertainment provide support for the Dr. E. Sherburne Lovell Health Career Award and the services of the Hospital.
