The Plaids......Go Hawaiian
To Appear at Dairy Festival, Saturday Night
by: Bobby McDonald
Those attending Saturday night's 53rd Annual Hopkins County Dairy Festival Pageant and Queen Coronation, are in for a real treat, as "The Plaids" have decided to "go Hawaiian" as they appear at the "Cow-A-Bunga Mooau!"
"We were looking for entertainment for the pageant, to give the girls ample time to change clothes and for us to change sets, and someone suggested The Plaids," expressed Pageant Director Lynda Hager. "And, it didn't take any discussion for us to make plans to contact the popular local group, comprised of Dr. Chuck Jones, Kevin Wooley, John White, and Mike Dodd. We were delighted that they accepted the invitation to entertain everyone!"
The talented quartet will be accompanied by Denise Stewart, on the piano, and will first perform the national anthem, at the beginning of the program, and then will perform four numbers during the program. They'll also be available for more entertainment, should the judges take longer to tabulate the scores for Saturday night.
"It's always nice to have a talented group like this to make sure that the audience will be amply entertained, while the judges make their tabulations," expressed Hager. "With nine young ladies competing for the crown, tabulation may be slow, to make certain everything is checked and double-checked. But, with this talented group of local singers, we don't have to worry about a 'restless' audience, as they can keep the crowd 'in stitches' with their humor and their outstanding music!"
So, the appearance of The Plaids is just another reason for you to load-up the family and make your way to the Hopkins County Civic Center, on Saturday night, to enjoy the show!
