Chicago's Saint Patrick's Queen 2008 (Eileen on left)
Plumber's Local 130 and the Plumbing Council of Chicagoland picked a pretty polish girl from Park Ridge, Illinois to become the Chicago Saint Patrick's Queen for 2008. Eileen Kapolnek looked very nice. She accepted the crown from Julie Ann Venci, the Italian winner from last year. In fairness to the girls, James Sullivan should not allow the ladies younger than 21 to enter since they have no chance to win. The contest is great for a young lady that is not 100% Irish to enter.
