Geil, Louzek named junior ambassadors


Lillian Geil of Moose Lake and Dilon Louzek of Willow River are the 2016 Junior Ambassadors.

Lillian Geil of Moose Lake and Dilon Louzek of Willow River have been selected by the Moose Lake Area Chamber of Commerce to represent the chamber in the next year as Junior Ambassadors.

Lillian will be a senior in the next school year at Moose Lake High School, and is the daughter of Jessica and Don Geil. She is the second oldest of five girls in the family.

Her older sister, Madeline, will be starting her second year of college, and has served the community as Miss Moose Lake.

Lillian has participated in cross country and has joined school clubs.

Her passion is English literature, and she will be attending a literary program at Illinois University this summer. Lillain also works part-time at the Lazy Moose.

Lillian said she will be gone during Crazy Corn Days the first weekend of August but added her sister, Maddie, the former Miss Moose Lake, could step in and represent her.

Lillian is looking forward to her duties as junior ambassador in the coming year.

"It will be interesting to see everything the chamber does other than the Fourth of July and Agate Days," she said.

Dilon will be a junior in the fall at Willow River High School.

His parents are Kristin and Dave Louzek.

Dave is the athletic director at Willow River and the coach of the Rebels football team. Dilon has played football since he was in fifth or sixth grade, he said.

He said he is not sure about his future plans. He is considering joining the National Guard.

Dilon works part-time caring for properties his mother and grandmother represent in their real estate business, he said.

Both said the duties with the chamber will fit well into their schedules.

Dilon is looking forward to serving as junior ambassador for the chamber.

"I want to give back to the community," he said. "I also want to get to know my community better. It will be fun to be more socially active in the community."

The junior ambassadors will be assisting with the parade on the Fourth of July, and they will also assist with Agate Days, such as at the stampede. Other activities include: serving corn at Crazy Corn Days, working at the chamber office and giving out information to tourists, helping with the haunted house during Halloween, assisting with the visit with Santa during the first Saturday in December, and generally promoting the chamber in all of its activities.

"I'm really excited," said Lillian. "I've always watched the parade on the Fourth of July and have been to Agate Days. Now I will be able to help with them."

Dilon is also looking forward to the coming year.

"I think it will be interesting," he said. "I will be making a lot of good memories; I'll have something to look back on. It will be hectic but we'll get through it in one piece."
