Thanks for making Ms. Senior Parker County event a success
On behalf of the Parker County Committee on Aging, I want to thank Holland Lake Nursing Center, and in particular, Donna Tillman, for the wonderful Ms. Senior Parker County Pageant held April 13.
This pageant is a great event for Parker County and all its citizens. Donna and her group of dedicated workers did an outstanding job. I have to admit this was the first pageant I have attended, but certainly not the last. I was honored to be a judge and please know this was a most difficult job.
All the ladies were so wonderful, it was not an easy task. Congratulations to all the ladies and a special congrats to Mrs. Billie June Cox, the 2013 Ms. Senior Parker County.
This pageant has one specific goal. All the proceeds go to Meals on Wheels at the Senior Center. In the 12 years the pageant has taken place it has provided more than $60,000 for the center. Also, the fall festival this same group hosts has brought in around $40,000. They do raffles, food drives, silent auctions and other donations.
This year the pageant will make around $6,100 and the bedspread that was raffled will bring $1,000 to the building fund. The pageant will bring to the center $7,100 this year. Thank you so much.
Thank you seems so very little to say, but a big thank you to Donna, her group of great workers, the ladies of the Senior Parker County Pageant and to all who participated in this event. There were many businesses who donated time, gifts and their name to make this work. Mark Riley was a great emcee for the event, as he has been from the very beginning.
