Practice Makes Perfect.....
Dairy Festival Rehearsals Build Toward Saturday Night
by: Bobby McDonald
While you've been attending other summertime activities, the nine young ladies vying for the Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen, the reigning queen, and members of the Hopkins County Dairy Festival Board, have all been diligently making their way to the Hopkins County Civic Center Auditorium, nightly, to rehearse for Saturday night's performance. Rehearsals began on Monday night and will continue thru Friday night's dress rehearsal, to make certain that Saturday night's event "goes off without a hitch!"
"We want the performance on Saturday night to be professional and without mistakes," expressed Dr. David Black, President of the Dairy Festival Board. "We want each of the young ladies to have the opportunity to 'shine' before the out-of-town judges and do their best, so we come every night, to make certain that they are comfortable with the props, the staging, and their routine. It's the least we can do for these outstanding young ladies, who have worked so hard to become our next Dairy Festival Queen!"
Saturday night's show will feature a variety of talent from the the nine candidates, reigning queen Lindsey McCormack, and local talent, The Plaids.
