Perchville King and Queen: Crowning our royalty is a long tradition of honoring individuals who have given selflessly back to our community. We congratulate Dareck and Kristin Cherwinski on being selected for the 2018 Perchville King and Queen. The Junior King was Joshua Wooton, a 6th grader from Holy Family School and the Junior Queen was Katelyn Papenfus, a 7th grader from Tawas Area Middle School. Click here for more on our 2018 Royalty. The Coronation Breakfast and the Coronation Challenge were big hits this year.  Many participated in games and won prizes all in fun and celebration of our royalty and tradition.
