Missing: A royal crown


Queen of Harambee Donna Jones-Hassan has lost her crown.

She wears the rhinestone-studded, peaked style crown (in photo) during her presentation at the glittery Krewe of Harambee VII Ball Saturday at Harrah’s Horseshoe Casino & Hotel Riverdome. The gold costume was created by Shreveport designer Jane Ryder, but Jones-Hassan ordered the crown online.

She had it on during the Fat Tuesday celebration at the Boardwalk.

"I think I had it on when I got on a float to ride to the middle of Texas Street Bridge for the closing ceremony," said Jones-Hassan. "When we exited the bridge, one of the ladies said, ‘Where is your crown?’"
"I said, ‘I don’t know,’" added Jones-Hassan.

So, if you find a crown among your Mardi Gras souvenirs, it wasn’t a throw. It is Jones-Hassan’s crown and she’d like to have it back — for the memories.

Give us a call at 459-3257 and we’ll see that it is returned.

How terrible to have a crown go missing! Hope she finds it.

I'm a southern gal and competed in pageants in younger days and know what fun crown wearing can be. That said, it would be awfully hard to give it back if I found it...
