One of my perennial goals is to blog on a regular basis. While I always have the best of intentions, sometimes that falls by the wayside as life gets in the way. The New Year kicked off for me with a Mother with a detached retina and a sister in the ICU for seven days. To my pageant family, friends and Facebook contacts, I appreciate all of the prayers and support that you have sent to my family. It means so much! Things are moving in the right direction and that is all I can hope for.
My blog is late for 2015, but we are still in January. I hope that your New Year’s Resolutions have something great in mind– pageantry, perhaps. This year, the Crowned Princess Charm Pageant has moved to Louisville, KY at the Ramada Inn Conference Center, April 24 and 25, 2015. I do hope that you will join us. Whether you are new to pageants or a veteran, we promise a fun time for you! I also need your assistance. I am seeking a theme for the pizza party this year. Any ideas? If so, please email them to me at Karen@distinct-impressions.net.
Brochures for the pageant have been printed , but with all of the family being ill, I have not had a chance to get them out. If you would like one mailed to you, please email or call (859)492-3025. The January Special will be extended until February 14, – to show my love for pageantry! Contestants can enter age division and specialty awards for $100. This offer will expire on Valentine’s Day! I require the $30 application fee to be paid at that time. You can call the pageant office at (859)492-3025 to pay by credit card or via PayPal at Karen@distinct-impressions.net.
Once the fee is received, you will receive your official pageant packet that outlines all the happenings of pageant weekend. If you have any questions, I urge you to contact me. I love pageantry as much as you do and I want you to have a wonderful experience.
