Saturday evening six ladies will show their stuff at the 5th Annual Ms. Hopkins County Senior Classic Pageant.
Although called a pageant, this event is about letting women age 60 or older shine and having fun doing it.
The pageant will feature six ladies ranging in age from 60 to 90 competing in four categories for the title and the opportunity to represent Hopkins County at the state contest later this summer. Each contestant will compete in four categories: a judges interview, philosophy of life, dress and talent. In addition to the overall title, awards are generally presented by category and for Miss Congeniality.
This year’s contestants include Enola Gay Mathews, Elizabeth Wilburn, Aliece Hanselka, Lavonne Elam, Clydene Fielden and Fay Robinson.
The event will feature performances by past Ms. Hopkins County Senior Classic winners Stella Bagley, Betty Caudle and Sonja-Baker Norton, as well as Ms. Texas Senior Classic 2012 Nancy Bolton as the results of the 2014 pageant are voted on.
Michael Delaney of Cornerstone Hospice is looking forward to donning evening attire and serving as this year’s master of ceremonies.
Visiting Angels for the fifth year in a row is sponsoring the pageant.
Past participants have noted what a fun, friendly event the annual senior classic is. To help them become better acquainted, a contestants’ tea will be hosted an hour before pageant rehearsal Friday afternoon at the church to allow participants to become better acquainted, with goodies provided by Itdzibitsy Bakery in Brashear with local Red Hatters helping to set up and make it a special occasion.
Patricia Fisher, Charlotte Baxter, Tammie Duck, Jane Helberg and Denise McCarty have agreed to help serve as judges and Bobby McDonald as auditor at this year’s pageant, which begins at 6 p.m. Saturday, June 7, at Sulphur Springs Church of the Nazarene, 1300 South League St.
Those not competing are encouraged to attend the pageant, cheer on those brave ladies willing to step and show their stuff during a free evening of entertainment.
