St. Patrick's School students celebrate the 1985 World Series win. - photo by Tribune file photo

Following the Royals’ World Series win last week, The Great Bend Tribune received a request from long-time Great Bend resident Jean Volosin, now living in the Wichita area, if we could locate the Oct. 29, 1985 edition of the paper that depicted students at St. Patrick’s School celebrating the last Royal’s World Series win on Oct. 27, 1985.  It was on behalf of her son, Doug Klepper, who appears in the photo, she said. Happily, we still had a copy in our basement archives.  
The original caption read:  ROYALS ARE NUMBER ONE — St. Patrick School third graders in Vicki Fabricius’ class are treated to a royal victory celebration Monday afternoon when Carol Delp delivered Royals cupcakes to the students.  Delp made a bet with her son, Terry, who is in the class, that the Royals would become World Series champions.  They did, and she kept her promise to the third graders.  She also made cupcakes for her daughter, Crystal’s, kindergarten class.
