Thank you to Amy’s Cards and Gifts for providing the gift bags for the judges and C&H Monograms/Polkadot Patch for donating the beautiful sashes. Thank you to the Eastland Middle School Cheerleaders for dazzling the crowd with exhilarating intermission entertainment. We also want to thank the First Baptist Church for the use of the facility and Ron Harden for announcing the event. A very special thank you goes to Mindy Whitaker who coordinated the event because without her expertise the pageant would not have been possible. Last but not least, we want to thank all the contestants and parents for participating in the event. Pictures courtesy of Joellen Hodge.
