Our 2011-2012 Mason County Queen’s Court is off to a good start receiving a red ribbon at the 76th Annual Hill Country Fair Association Summer Classic Rodeo Parade in Junction last Saturday. The topaz, our state gem, found only in Mason County is the theme of this year's float. Thanks to Chris Habecker, Cindy Morris, Ethan Hudson, and Myles Banner we have another amazing float. And thanks to Matthew Kast & kids we managed to get to Junction with plenty of time to spare. You might not know this, but every member of the court, Staci Habecker, Savannah Kast, Dakota Lee, Lydia Bierschwale, and Claudia Canfield are little worker bees! They do their part in creating the float, and helping set it up and tear it down at every parade. They leave for the parades around 6 a.m. every Saturday, have great attitudes and lots of fun. Considering all that the court has to do, both inside and outside of our town, we could not accomplish it all without the support of their parents. Because our goal is to pay our way, we have a fundraiser every year for the float re-do, outfits, parade candy, and gas to and from the parade, so we will have a BAR-B-QUE & BAKE SALESUNDAY AUGUST 21, 2011, NOONON THE WEST SIDE OF THE SQUARE$6.00 FOR BBQ, CHIPS, & A DRINKALL DONATIONS GRATEFULLY ACCEPTED.
