   School is winding down and Whoop-up Trail Days are on the horizon.  The Pondera Tavern Association is again sponsoring the Whoop-Up Queen Scholarship program.  
   This year there is a twist to the program.  In addition to ticket sales, the young women will be writing a short essay on the history of the Whoop-Up Trail.
   A meet and greet social will take place at Legion Park on June 6.  Everyone is welcomed to attend and meet the candidates, view their essays and find out who will be crowned Whoop-Up Queen 2009.
