It’s time to start plans for 2017 Pioneer Day Peach Queen contest and pageant. Last year was a lot of fun and hard work. I still get positive comments about the pageant. And, from those who were not there saying they will not miss it this year. This years’ contest’s list should be bigger and better than last year. The plans for this years’ pageant should make it even more spectacular than last year. All our efforts are needed again this year. The first meeting is scheduled for Today, Thursday (Apr 20) at 5:00 pm in the Chamber of Commerce Office. We will present Queen Kaycee Parker with her scholarship as reigning Queen. We invite club and sponsors to be present and we’re distributing info for this year’s contest. An exciting time! Look forward to seeing you there.
We are still looking for a trailer for a permanent home for the Queen Float. It needs to be a hay type trailer. Keep an eye out, ask farmers and rancher friends. It would be nice if someone could donate one.
