The new Princess Kay of the Milky Way is from Stearns County.

Christine Reitsma of Sauk Centre was crowned the 59th Princess Kay last (Wednesday) night at the state fairgrounds.

She’ll serve as the goodwill ambassador for more than 4,000 Minnesota dairy farmers.

One of Reistma’s first duties will be to sit in a cooler for about six hours today (Thursday) to have her likeness sculpted in a 90-pound block of butter.
