A teacher at Centennial is interviewed for the evening news.
Minnesota State Fair Butter Sculptor and RHS Alum

With the Minnesota State Fair wrapping up this weekend, now is your last chance to see one of Linda Christensen's butter sculptures. Linda is a 1960 graduate of Richfield High School and this year marks her 50th (and final) year sculpting Princess Kay of the Milky Way out of butter. She turns the sculpting knife over to artist Gerry Kulzer during a ceremony tonight at the butter booth.

Clad in winter gear from head to toe in the middle of summer and carrying her trusty sculpting tools, Linda Christensen stepped into the refrigerated glass booth in the Dairy Building at the Minnesota State Fair on Thursday morning, eager to get going on turning butter into a bust for the 50th and final year.

"It’s time," Christensen, a Minneapolis native who lives in Oceanside, Calif., near San Diego, said earlier this week. "People used to ask me, ‘How much longer are you going to keep doing this?’ And I say, ‘Until I can’t.’ Well, I decided that day isn’t going to come. But it does become more difficult for me. And I figure 50 is a good round number to call it a day."
