Past District 53 Governor dubbed by Hobo Queen

2008-9 Hobo Queen Carmine Coco DeYoungKarin von Kaenel was officially dubbed by the 2008-9 National Hobo Queen (and current Area A4 Governor) Carmine Coco DeYoung at the Area A4 speech contest on Wed. Sept.30th.

Part of the dubbing process is the awarding of a "hobo moniker" for the honoree and Karin was given the name "Countess Butterfly" due to her background as a statistician and the butterfly logo she had during her year as District 53 Governor.

The picture to the right shows Carmine explaining the award / dubbing process.

Below are pictures of Karin being "dubbed" by Carmine with the ceremonial hobo walking stick.

Congratulations Karin !
