Portland, Oregon's Most Versatile Performer and Band Leader!

Linda Lee Michelet to be Honored as Knight
by Royal Rosarians

On Tuesday, February 6, Linda was working out at The Quad with her son Erik when her friend Cheryl Prochaska walked in with Kimberly Takla in their Royal Rosarian regalia holding a bouquet of roses. They informed Linda that she had been selected to be Knighted as an Honorary Royal Rosarian in the 2024 Portland Rose Festival! What a delightful surprise!

Royal Rosarians Cheryl Prochaska and Kimberly Takla brought Linda roses to congratulate her on her nomination. Brett Prochaska and Francine Raften offered congratulations.

The knighting ceremony is open to the public and will be held on June 7, 2024 at 9:00 am at Oregon Square, 800 NE Holladay St. Portland where Linda and others will have the order of Honorary Knighthood of the Kingdom of Rosaria bestowed upon them by the reigning Queen of Rosaria using her Royal Scepter.
