Charming Emily Verde was officially crowned Miss San Pedro Lions 2003-2004 last Saturday at a special coronation ceremony held at the Lions Den.

    Performing as Master of Ceremonies for the event was San Pedro Lions President Francisco Verde who welcomed the congregation present for this grand occasion.
