This past weekend we had our annual Ms. Pink Bud Pageant for a few of our ladies here. Our contestants this year were Faye Porter, Bryce Rachels, Wanda South and Bea Wilson. They all were so excited to dress up and have their hair and make-up done to show everyone. Doug Kinslow was our MC for the afternoon and we also had three very special guests. Thank you to Elizabeth Scharbor, Shirley Webb and Tina Kesner for being our judges. We had many family and friends that came to watch the show. It was a very hard choice for our judges but, in the end, Ms. Congeniality went to Bryce Rachels, Ms. Social was Faye Porter, First Runner-Up was Wanda South and the 2013 Ms. Pink Bud Queen goes to Bea Wilson.

She will have the opportunity to compete next week in the 2013 Sebastian County District pageant held at Mercy Crest in Barling and from there the winner will compete in the 2013 State Pageant held in Little Rock, Ark. at a later date.

Some of the residents also attended the 2013 Senior Olympics held in Fort Smith last week. They had many games and everyone had a great time. There were 12 other area nursing homes that were there.

We have a lot of exciting things coming up in the next few months and the holidays are right around the corner!
