Kyle with her family: Brother Sam Woolsey Parents Joann & Mike Grandmother Mary Anna Perez As for the next two days of the festival, she noted: “I’m thrilled for two more days, so much fun.” Toughest part of the day: “The flame-up. It was difficult but very memorable.” At end of day, the queen and her court attended Don Christopher’s 60 Years In the Garlic Industry dinner at CordeValle Countrry Club. For Kyle, a wonderful end to a great day. When asked about her day and what she felt was the best part, she said “every- thing was so amazing.” Although very tired, she noted that she was overwhelmed at the energy and importance of the festival to so many. “Don Christopher and his involvement, I’m just so impressed and encouraged to see how someone can be so successful doing what he loves and then giving back so much to the community, she noted.” GILROY • MORGAN HILL • SAN MARTIN SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER 2016 43
