Miss Salt Queen Jill Ferrell and Ms Salt Queen Christy Grant appeared in the recent HutchFest Patriots Parade held on July 4th, 2009 in Hutchinson, KS. Ferrell won the title of Miss Salt Queen at Underground Vaults and Storage’s recent Salt Queen Celebration held 650 feet below Hutchinson on April 24, 2009. Grant won the title of Ms Salt Queen the same evening. The celebration was held to celebrate 50 years in business for Underground Vaults and Storage, Inc. Contestants between the ages of 18-21 competed for the title of Miss Salt Queen, and contestants between the ages of 50-53 competed for the title of Ms Salt Queen.

Employees of Underground Vaults and Storage, Inc. graciously volunteered to walk in the parade and hand out salt water taffy to the parade audience. Grand Marshall for the Patriots Parade was astronaut Joe Engel.

UV&S would like to extend a special thanks to Mr. Bob Horyna for allowing us to use his vehicles during this parade. Horyna extended the use of his 1957 Ford Fairlane convertible, and he also offered the use of his 1965 Chrysler convertible. This car was the same type of car used in the television show Fantasy Island. UV&S would also like to thank the employees who volunteered to walk and hand out candy during the parade.
