Washington State Apple Blossom's 10 royalty candidates have been busy the past few weeks getting ready for the Feb. 9 pageant. Here, they enter a dining room formally set at the Rivertop Bar and Grill atop the Coast Wenatchee Center Hotel Tuesday. The etiquette lessons were led by Ann Deal, center, and Coreen Tilly, right. Common Sense was the major lesson but details like cutting up one's lettuce and staying away from difficult foods to cut and eat — cherry tomatoes for one. For more on the candidates, check out Friday's Wenatchee World.
