At a Pierce County Council Meeting on January 31, 2012, an official resolution was passed to name the Daffodil Festival Royalty, and future Royalty, as “Official Ambassadors of Pierce County.”   The announcement was first made by Councilman Rick Talbert at the Princess Promenade and the girls were thrilled!

This honor has special meaning because most people think of our Daffodil Parade as our contribution to the community. This resolution provides a title that immediately elevates their status as representatives of their communities, acknowledging their dedication to their leadership and community service, and acknowledging the value of the work the girls perform each year.

During the 2012 Festival year, the Princesses made over 200 appearances and had thousands of hours of community services with organizations like the Boys and Girls Club, Pierce County Libraries, YMCA, Point Defiance Zoo, World Vision, Relay for Life, and the Emergency Food Network.
