Issaquah Chamber of Commerce crowns royalty
May 10, 2011
Hail, King and Queen Issaquah.
Issaquah Chamber of Commerce leaders crowned Evergreen Ford employee Josh Rehn and Hilton Garden Inn employee Laurie Carlisle as king and queen for the year ahead. The pair received royal robes and salmon-shaped crowns at a chamber luncheon April 19.
King and Queen Issaquah serve as goodwill ambassadors to the community. The duo presides at ribbon-cutting ceremonies, participates in the Independence Day and Salmon Days Festival parades, and is honored at chamber events.
Nathan Perea, a former City Council candidate and Issaquah Highlands resident, and Renee Zimmerman, another highlands resident, held the royal titles in 2010.
