My daughter, the hopefully future queen

It's a penny per vote thing that determines the Chain O' Lakes Festival queen, who gets a crown and a sash and rides in the Festival parade. You really just can't get any more small-town midwest America than that. Here's the pic and article that will accompany the pics of the other six girls in next week's paper:

Jillian Hunter, daughter of Mark Hunter of Albion and Diana Emmons of Kendallville, is a sophomore at East Noble High School. She participates in theater, and is a member of East Noble's Show Choir, Premier Edition. Her sister and aunt are both former Chain O' Lakes Festival Queens.

Jillian's hobbies include reading, writing, dancing, singing, and hanging out with her friends. Her summer plans include attending Show Choir practices, learning to drive, learning to play the guitar, and going to the beach with friends. Her can is located at Fischer Pharmacy and Home Medical, 112 N Orange Street.

Jillian of The Lilacs. Elaine of Astolat was no fairer. If I were near Albion, her can would get all my pennies.

Thanks ... hopefully, if she wins I won't have to bow, or ask her assistance for an audience, or anything.

I'll put in a dollar -- a hundred votes! (It's legal -- this is one election where people can vote as often as they like; the contest is also a fund raiser for the Festival.)

Can we send our pennies through PayPal?!

She's a lovely looking young lady.

I never thought of that! I think that would be better to leave it a local contest, though. Unless I find out she's only a few votes behind ... ;-)

Oh, we're proud of our hickness. There's a town just over the state line in Ohio actually called Hicksville -- you can't get more hick that that.

My sister, who won the contest several years ago, is named Penney ... I always wondered if she won by one vote.

What a pretty girl! (Pretty lilacs, too.)

D'you suppose my sisters would think I was just insane if I asked them to drive from Bremen and put some pennies in? *g* (I'd do it myself if I were there.)

Yeah, I believe your sisters would think you were insane ... do it anyway! :-)

I might not have any pennies left -- every time I turn around, all my pennies have mysteriously disappeared. Something tells me the same thing is happening to the parents of the other girls who are running, too. :-)

Don't worry, I'll keep you posted -- I'll probably end up writing a column about it, once the dust has settled.

Ooh ... Aussie Penny's ... do you mind if I give her some American ones, and keep yours for my collection?

Nope -- voting goes on until the end of May, and the Queen is crowned on June 7. So I'll send your wishes on!
