The AAO Announces Terri Kane as Captain

Lifelong Aquatennial Volunteer Will Join the 2020 Ambassadors

Terri Kane has been named a 2020 Aquatennial Captain.

Terri is a long time Aquatennial volunteer who has assisted in various events in all of the original divisions including Parades, Power Boats and the Aqua Fireworks Party. She was also instrumental in the revamping of the Aqua Dragon float for the Aquatennial's 50th anniversary.

Along with being involved in the Aquatennial, Terri has volunteered her time with other events and festivals in various roles such as the St. Louis Park Parktacular Parade Coordinator and board member; Woodbury, Eagan, Rice Street, and West St. Paul parade volunteer; Dreadwood Haunted Forest volunteer; Holidazzle pacer; and BIR SCCA and IMSA racing series safety worker.

Terri has always enjoyed the friendships and mission of the Aquatennial and Aquatennial Ambassador Organization. She started with the Aquatennial as a “day of” volunteer and stayed because of the people. As she likes to put it, she’s spent more of her birthdays with her Aquatennial family than her own family.

Terri is a graduate of the College of St. Teresa with a degree in Social Work and Psychology. She has worked in the customer relations field since she graduated.

She is a lifelong Minneapolis resident.

Terri will replace Captain Alexx Smith who had to step down this summer due to other responsibilities.
