Rose Festival Princesses donned aprons, picked up menus and coffee pots and served a little down home Rose Meal hospitality at the Parkrose Elmer's last month.

Elmer's Restaurants are proud to continue their involvement with the Portland Rose Festival by offering their exclusive Rose Meals.

All 15 members of the 2012 Rose Festival Court were on hand to serve patrons one of three Elmer's Rose Meal Deals offered in support of the Rose Festival Foundation.

For every order of their seasonal Strawberry-Apple Poppy Seed Salad, Fresh Fruit Waffle or Stuffed French Toast Combo, Elmer's donates $1 to the Portland Rose Festival Foundation. Rose Meals are available through July 1 at participating restaurants.

Walt and Dorothy Elmer founded Elmer's Restaurants in 1960 in Portland. Since then, Elmer's Restaurants have built a tradition of delivering premium meals at moderate prices, while maintaining high standards for service and hospitality.

For more than 50 years, this focus has built an intensely loyal customer base. Today, Elmer's Restaurants, Inc. operates and franchises 28 restaurant locations across three brands: including Mitzel's American Kitchen, and most recently, Taprock Northwest Grill in southern Oregon.

As a local company, Elmer's takes pride in its communities by celebrating everything that is wonderful about the Northwest. Elmer's Restaurants source local, farm-fresh ingredients, and bring seasons of the Northwest to your table.

Jerry Danna, Parkrose Elmer's franchisee said, “We're pleased to participate in the Rose Meal program. We're happy to help the [Rose Festival] foundation raise money for their programs. We look forward every year to seeing the Court at our restaurant, especially Central's princess.” (Sometime in the previous century, before it was a coed school, the Danna brothers graduated from Central Catholic.)

Each Princess on the Rose Festival Court is awarded a $3,500 scholarship courtesy of The Randall Group, which has generously donated to the Rose Festival court scholarship program since 1997.

The 2012 Portland Rose Festival Queen is selected at the Queen's Coronation Saturday, June 9 at 9:30 a.m., just before the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade.

For tickets to see the Queen's Coronation at Veterans Memorial Coliseum, call 1-877-789-7673. For more information on all Rose Festival events, visit
