Twelve American girls will be among the last debutantes this year to be presented to Queen Elizabeth II.
The American girls who will curtsy to the queen in the huge Buckingham Palace ballroom include Susan Vick, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Vick of 19 Lakeview Drive, Cooperstown.
Together with about 500 other young women, they have been invited to Buckingham Palace on March 20.
This is the final year when debs will be received by the queen, and competition among British society has been stiff.
