Julie Bartels Named Mrs. Oktoberfest
Another Oktoberfest secret is out...
Guests at the Mrs. Oktoberfest reception last night got to toast the new 'Mrs.'...retired nurse Julie Bartels. She worked with Franciscan and Mayo for more than 30 years. While her selection was kept secret from the public until this week, Julie learned the news last May, after being invited to a luncheon under phony pretenses.
The last member of the 2012 royal family, the Festmaster, will be introduced at the Festmaster's Ball tomorrow night.
