Meet Mrs. Oktoberfest 2012


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - We've learned the identity of another member of the Royal Family. Julie Bartels is this year's Mrs. Oktoberfest. Julie might have grown up in Dorchester, Iowa, but says she's been a long time resident and fan of the La Crosse area.

Julie says, "I've always felt like I was a good ambassador for La Crosse and my husband and I do a lot in the community and so we just feel like it's an honor and a privilege to be able to do it formally."

Mrs. Oktoberfest 2012 has an expansive list of accomplishment, and is an active volunteer in our community. She was employed with Franciscan Skemp Healthcare, now Mayo Clinic Health System, for 34 years.

Friday night, we'll learn the identity of this year's Festmaster.
