Chain O' Lakes Festival -- Princess

Jillian came in second place in the Chain O' Lakes Festival Queen contest this year. It's a penny per vote system, with each candidate having two cans: one they carry around for donations, one that's kept with their sponsor, which in Jillian's case was the pharmacy where her sister, Charis, works. (The money goes toward the Festival entertainment budget.) Six girls ran this year (although for some reason one didn't show for the presentation), and between them they raised almost a thousand bucks. Jillian lost the Queen position by only about two dollars! It was a squeaker, and I'm feeling a bit guilty because when Charis raided the ash tray full of change in my car, I told her to leave, just in case of emergency ... a couple of dollars. *sob*

Jillian's taking it much better than any of the rest of us. Not one tear: Just a determination to win it next year. In the pic below, she's the gal all the way to the left (and with the best dress, I might add). The queen is second from right.
Hopefully I'll get some pics of her in the parade tomorrow.

By far, she is the prettiest. Don't feel guilty, you had no way of knowing. Now you know for next year!

Well, of *course* she's the prettiest ... she takes after her dad's side of the family. :->

Next year we'll just rob a bank. And take only change.

That dress IS the best one - so pretty and it fits her properly too! What a shame she didn't quite make it this year. Good luck for next time!

That was her new haircut, too ... she got it chopped off just a couple of weeks ago. Next year there'll be a major difference, because she just got fitted for contacts -- no glasses next time around. She's like a whole new person, who hopefully will go to college, get rich, and support her father in his old age.

Well done that girl - even though first would have been even better - second by a couple of dollars is excellent fund-raising.

And you are right - that is the best dress.

Say ... maybe we should have the dress bronzed?

Nah. :->

better to look good while losing than look bad while winning!

she def. has the best dress on. :D

What time IS the parade?

Gene wants to take Nancy, but I wanna hit the Scottish Games in the morning AND German Fest.

The parade starts at 6 ... you could theoretically make it to all three, but that would make for one hectic day!

She makes a very pretty princess. She also looks happier than any of the other girls there.

Congratulations, Jill and Ozma! =D Second place is nothing to sneeze at! As figure skater Michelle Kwan so wisely put it when asked if she felt bad about losing the Olympic gold medal to Tara Lipinski: "I didn't lose the gold. I WON the SILVER!"

A round of cyber applause, also, to the rest of the girls, whether they placed or no! "Cain't everybody be in the parade. There has to be someone to sit on the sidewalk and wave little flags." (That's quoting me, not Michelle. Michelle wouldn't say "cain't." ;D )

Say, that's a coincidence ... I'm going to be sitting on the sidewalk and waving the flag later today. :-) Michelle had the right attitude -- being second best in the world is pretty darn good. Those girls were the only ones in the county to have the guts to even get up there on stage, so Jillian's silver is just as big.

That's a fantabulous dress. I agree with the others -- she is prettiest.

I don't care what my Jillyh2009 tells you -- it's the genes.
