Queens Headquarters

Awoke this morning to another beautiful summer day - sunshine and moderate temperatures!  My day began early with queens contest set up.  The stage was brought in and chairs have been placed for the 24 contestants, current queen, host queen and the emcee.  Helpers from out of town arrived and pitched right in with the preparations.

My daughter has developed a computer scoring program which we tested on the laptop.  She also made scoring sheets for the judges.  It took us an hour to work through the logistics of the paperwork shuffle, but the judging process will be a well oiled machine!  Our local Visitor's and Convention Bureau put together a super welcome gift for the girls.  The florist provided decorations for the stage and will deliver the flowers Fri. morning.  By 3:00 pm, the work was completed.  WE ARE READY!

Thursday evening a picnic was held for everyone who worked to bring this convention to town.  The firefighters provided the food, cooks, and fellowship.  Officers of the N.O.V.F.A. arrived early and were introduced to the Upper Sandusky firefighters, their wives, and officials of the city and county.  It was a time for everyone to take a deep breath, meet the officers, and get excited for the weekend! 

Bedtime is near, and I'm going to need all the sleep I can get!
