A big thank-you to all who attended the pageant and to those who were unable to attend but purchased raffle tickets from our members. Thank you to Margaret Bright, Margaret Ann Wayland, Diane Freeman, Lizzie Crawford, Faye Henry and Gail Deal; without each and every one of you this could not have been successful.

Also, a special thank you is extended to Megan Perrero, Jill Atkins and Rodney Butler for taking on the important task of tabulating the scoring of our judges – Glen Hoffherr, Faye Vaughn and Hanna Klein.

Our emcees for the event are to be commended for a job well done: Ms. Erin Stickler and Miss Megan Early, thank you both.

If we have forgotten anyone, please forgive us.

In closing, we would like to thank the dedicated members of Sperryville Volunteer Rescue Squad, the citizens of Rappahannock County and those from surrounding counties for supporting us in our fundraising efforts.
