So extremely thankful for a great pageant weekend. The positive encouragement and support of trying a new venue helped us make it successful. It shows such a big statement to have over 350 people in attendance to support these 29 young ladies representing their common bond of the Hancock County 4-H program. The committee is proud of each and every one! 
Something else we are very proud of is the bond between this year's girls. While the committee was backstage prepping for the event, this photo was taken to show something very unique from these young ladies. They initiated and conducted a prayer circle before the pageant began. Families: Be proud of these young ladies that you are raising, because we definitely are! 
🍀 Michelle, Lori, Ashley and Megan
