Ladies to compete for Ms. Senior Homemaker title

Seven Shawano area ladies age 55 and older will compete for the title of Ms. Senior Homemaker in a pageant in June.

In this fun competition, the candidates will participate in a multi-tasking event where they must fold laundry, wash dishes, take care of a crying baby doll and answer a telemarketing call within three minutes. No bathing suits for this competition, but a meaningful outfit or piece of jewelry will tell her story. Presenting a talent is optional, and a Q&A will give the judges their final scores.

The winner will receive a crown, sash and flowers, and she will reign for one year. All competitors will receive gifts donated by area businesses.

The pageant — which will include entertainment, luncheon and door prizes — will be held June 14 from 1-4 p.m. in the pavilion at Shawano Lake County Park, W5785 Lake Drive. For information, call Amy Thusius at 715-745-4421.
