Pancake Day Trivia – In 1960, the Pancake Day Queen’s crown was lost. At the last minute, a        replacement tiara had to be acquired. By 1961, a new crown had been constructed. The  original heavily adorned crown was created by Elizabeth Burnham, and the second, which has been used for the past 50 years, was designed by her daughter, Kathy.
