Connie Van Flandern & Mitra Chester talk about what it means to be SLUG Queen
The SLUG Queen pageant has been a Eugene tradition since 1983, but the office of SLUG Queen hasn’t always been so involved in the community. Connie Van Flandern or Queen Marie Slugtoinette sat down with her friend Mitra Chester to talk about Connie’s role in shaping the meaning of being SLUG Queen.

Throughout 2012, in honor of Eugene’s 150th birthday celebration, Story Catchers partnered with the City of Eugene to offer 150 Eugene residents the opportunity to record and preserve their stories, memories, and reflections. We completed 120 forty minute recordings, involving more than 200 people from a broad range of our community. This project was a wonderful experience for us … and we look forward to bringing forth more stories as Story Catchers moves into new directions.
Our deepest thanks to all of you who participated and helped to make the Eugene@150-Story Catchers project a success!
