Cindy Coombes
For almost 20 years, Cindy has been an active volunteer with Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest.

Since 2008, she has worked diligently as the Chair of the Miss Oktoberfest Committee to recruit an outstanding group of candidates each year in the Search for Miss Oktoberfest. Cindy has also been actively involved in reformatting the judging for the Search, to ensure that the best ambassador is chosen for the festival.

This year, Cindy took on the additional role as Chair of the Miss Oktoberfest Gala Ball and displayed fantastic management skills, balancing her responsibilities to both committees and working with her Vice-Chairs to maintain the high standards that have become synonymous with the Miss Oktoberfest Ambassador Program and the Gala Ball.

Anne Foster
Word: Gemuetlichkeit.
Definition A: Warm friendliness. Congeniality.
Definition B: Anne Foster.

As a dedicated 25-year volunteer, Anne has served on the Gemuetlichkeit, Conventions and Parade Committees. In every role, she has demonstrated a passion for bringing the Spirit of Gemuetlichkeit to everyone she meets. Anne carries out her duties knowing that the difference between try and triumph is just a little ‘umph’!

Early morning or late night hours are part of the job for Anne. Regardless of the hour, she’ll have a smile on her face and a friendly word for everyone. Her willingness to do whatever is necessary to get the job done, and her encouragement of others to do the same, has made Anne an invaluable member of the Kitchener-Waterloo Oktoberfest team.
