TOGETHER, they have attended close to 100 Jacaranda Festivals.

In 2012, Matron of Honour Pauline Glasser and Guest of Honour Roy Bowling will be looking to add another to their growing legacies.

Ms Glasser is looking forward to her new role, which will involve chaperoning the six Jacaranda Queen candidates in their traditional festivities leading up to the crowning ceremony on October 27.

Mr Bowling, a former town crier for 25 years, is honoured to be part of the Jacaranda Festival again.

"As a proud Graftonian, it is nice to be involved with the Jacaranda Festival," Ms Glasser said.

"It is a celebration of the history of Grafton and we are known for our Jacaranda Festival across Australia and around the world."

"I think it is a real honour to be involved with the event again in 2012," Mr Bowling added.

A former deputy principal of Grafton High School, Ms Glasser is synonymous with local events.

She is excited to be the Matron of Honour and will offer the candidates a supportive shoulder to lean on in their quest to be queen.

Mr Bowling expects plenty of locals to remember him and he is looking forward to embracing new memories at the 2012 festival.
