If you have been to a parade in Central Minnesota over the past 30 years, you have seen this man driving one of his Cadillac convertibles with three pretty girls sitting in the back. Yes, Willie Scheel has been escorting the Queens of Paynesville, Minnesota, in local parades since 1976.
After 24 parades together during a single summer, Willie often becomes good friends with the girls he drives from town to town That's how we met... we were both at the same wedding of a past Paynesville beauty queen. Willie was there with his Cadillac to escort the queen and her new husband around town after their wedding.
Meet Willie Scheel... he's the kind of guy who likes to make friends... he's the kind of guy you like to call your friend.
