The Davis clan is smilingPosted Sunday, June 24, 2007, at 12:13 AM
The Davis clan from near Newberry is surely smiling following the Miss Greene County pageant staged on Saturday at the fairgrounds.
Annie Davis and younger sister, Sadie Davis, carted home three of the four top titles awarded in competition against a dozen other contestants.
Annie, a sophomore of good old Purdue University, was crowned the 2007 Miss Greene County. Younger sister, Sadie, who'll be her sister's roommate at Purdue in the fall as a freshman, was named the second runner-up and Miss Congeniality.
Both are White River Valley High grads and the daughters of proud parents, Jim and Debby Davis from my neck of the woods near the tiny rural metropolis of Newberry.
First runner-up honors went to Jennifer Wilson, of rural Bloomfield. She the daughter of Bryan and Diane Wilson.
All three girls are veteran 4-H members - who have all carted home multiple blue ribbons during their 4-H tenures. They are very deserving of this latest honor that has been bestowed on them by the judges.
They will all do the county proud at the fair and I'm sure they'll have a great time in the process.
And, if you didn't attend the event, you missed a very classy exit by last year's queen Jessica Veatch. She's been a very good queen over the past year and represented the county with poise and distinction everywhere she went. Also, on Saturday night, she proved she could "ham" it up with the best of them -- even pageant master of ceremonies Randall Brown, who also left little doubt that he's probably a better financial consultant than he is a comedian.
Seriously, Randall you did a great job as MC, but next year you should probably leave the "corn" jokes at home.
