On to State Fair!

It was quite a long week for the queen and her court members, but a great one!  The hot days were overcome with beautiful smiles and proud members to represent Hancock County each and every day.  As the week cooled down just a bit the days didn't seem quite as long.  Pictures of the ladies throughout the week to come!

Dawn Wallace and The Photography Barn

We haven't shared with you enough how much we ADORE the work of Dawn Wallace at The Photography Barn.  She is absolutely amazing and so very talented.  Dawn always seems to capture the best moments from our queen pageant.  She spends the day with us on judging and the entire evening with us at the queen pageant.  She always goes above and beyond by getting something "fun" for the girls to get their photos taken with at the end of a long judging day.  Please be sure to use Dawn for all your photography needs.  You won't regret it! 

Here is some of Dawn's work with the 2010 queen pageant.

2011 Queen Judging was a SUCCESS!

Yesterday was the 2011 Hancock County 4-H Fair Queen Juding at Brandywine Community Church.  The day was a success ending about 3 p.m.  Prior to the girls leaving we did end the day with some wonderful photos in front of tractors compliments of Smith Implements and the magic wonders of Dawn Wallace and The Photography Barn.  Here are some photos from the day.

Welcome! We have several events coming up and they are approaching quickly!
June 18th - Brunch and Workshop
This will be held at the Ninestar Connect south campus off of US 40 just east of St. Rd. 9.
The brunch will begin at 10 a.m. and go to approximately noon. Please bring ONE adult female guest of your choice. The 2011 State Fair Queen and her mother will be in attendance, as well as our 2010 Hancock County Fair Queen, Melissia Grant and her mother. Following brunch with our female guests will be the workshop where you can receive makeup, interview, modeling, outfit, and shoe tips. We will practice with real interview questions, discuss your options for formal and professional wear, and go over make-up tips for stage presence. The mothers/female guests can also spend time asking questions separately.
