Honorary Miss Clear Lake Mardelle (Tulgren) Anderson is pictured here with 2021-2022 Clear Lake Court members L-R: Second Princess Kelli Niles, Third Princess Zoey Duden and First Princess Bailey Alvermann.

Before crowning the new court at last weekend’s Clear Lake Heritage Days and grabbing their sash to make a dash into their futures, the 2021-22 Clear Lake royalty had a mission to honor a special person from the past.

In 1941 Mardelle (Tulgren) Anderson was instrumental in helping the Miss Clear Lake program get off to a start. A resident at Amery’s Golden Age Manor, she recently turned 100 and was crowned an honorary Miss Clear Lake.
