Three Former Dairy Festival Queens
To "Come Back" for Saturday's Parade
by: Bobby McDonald
It will be reigning Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen, Lindsey McCormack, atop the Queen's float, waving to the crowd, as the 53rd Annual Hopkins County Dairy Festival Parade gets underway, from Buford Park at 10:00 a.m., on Saturday. However, she'll be sharing the spotlight with three former queens, who have been invited to appear in Saturday's parade. They are the 1962 Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen, Linda Booker Bennett; the 1987 Dairy Festival Queen, Kathy Brannon Granger; and the 2002 Dairy Festival Queen Hillary Harris Hill. The three former queens will be riding in convertibles and waving to the crowd, as well.
Linda Booker Bennett appeared in the 50th Anniversary Parade, back in 2009. However, both Granger and Hill were unable to attend the anniversary event, so that makes it even more special for them to be returning to Sulphur Springs and Hopkins County.
Linda Booker Bennett, was the 1962 Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen.
Kathy Brannon Granger, served as the Dairy Festival Queen in 1987.
Hillary Harris Hill served as the 2002 Hopkins County Dairy Festival Queen.
Congratulations and welcome back to Hopkins County, ladies!!!
