DID YOU KNOW?  
Eloise Berg in 1967

Robin Hood Days was instituted by the Chamber of Commerce, taking place on August 13-19. The week of civic programs and parades was named for the Robin Hood Flour grain elevator on Highway 7 (demolished in 1968). Gene Schadow served as Richard the First, and Gil Braun as Robin Hood. Featured during the festival was the crowning of Miss St. Louis Park, who was now called Maid Marian. The ceremony, held on August 17 at the Park High Auditorium, was hosted by emcee Jim Devine. The Coronation Chairman was Bob Wolfe. Production assistance was provided by members of the St. Louis Park Community Theater. The Parkettes performed two numbers, and the Leo Fine Orchestra provided the music. Our first Maid Marian was Eloise Berg, chosen from a field of 37 contestants.Princesses Kathie Corcoran and Sheila Siegel were now called “ladies in waiting” in keeping with the festival’s Olde English theme. Coronation of the Junior Queen and Commodore was held on August 12 at the Central AV room. A note on the Maid Marian program indicates that pictures of the current and past Miss St. Louis Parks were on display at City Hall.
