Hello! I hope that everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather we are having. Just when I thought it was time to pull out my winter coat, the sun decided to stay out a little longer. This past weekend I attended the Miss Washtenaw County pageant. I must say that although nothing compares to the excitment of competing, its always nice to be watching and cheering friends on from the audience. The contestants looked beautiful, and it was a pleasure to see all of the new and familiar faces. I want to give a huge congratulations to the new Miss Washtenaw, Rachel Sweet. We have competed in pageants together over the past couple of years, and I am very happy to have been there as she accomplished what she has worked so hard for over the years. It just goes to show the tremendous amount of growth that this organization brings out of each of us!
