Let the Locals Begin!... Good Luck to the Miss Lake Festival Program!

*Blasted Blog!!!* I've been tried to publish this post all day Saturday, but blogger wasn't working... So here goes from the Rockford Public Library... I've headed south to visit my family and attend the first local pageant of the 2006/2007 season.

The Miss Lake Festival Scholarship program will be held Monday, July 24, with the pre-show beginning at 7:30 in the Celina High School Field house. Miss Lake Festival is a “closed” local, meaning that there is a residency restriction; contestants must live, work or attend school in Mercer County.

It’s hard to believe that five years have past since I was crowned Miss Lake Festival, my very first title! I’ve enjoyed getting to know each Miss Lake Festival since me, and Sarah Garman, the reigning Miss Lake Festival was no exception. I look forward to hearing her perform Monday night and hope she continues competing. [Above on the left, Sarah performs her talent at Miss Ohio.]

Fourteen young women will compete for the title; they are below in completely random order.

Above Left: Gwen Scott, 18, is a recent graduate of Marion Local High. She plans to earn her cosmetology lisence at Aveda Institute. Her platform is Youth Leadership; she will sing "God Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts.
