Most of you reading this know all about Mason and the many advantages that come with living here. Visitors to our area however, may not be as familiar. The Mason County Queen’s Court (Catelyn Felts, Lydia Bierschwale, Caroline Hudson, Madelyn Glentz, and Savannah Kast) have been traveling to parades in the surrounding counties to represent Mason- The Pride of the Hill Country.
Although the name “Queen’s Court” sounds like it might be all about glitz and glamour, it isn’t. With the honor of being on the court, come great responsibilities; from waking up at the crack of dawn in order to get to the parade in time for judging, to making sure our “Pride of the Hill Country” float looks picture perfect. We work hard and depend on each other to make sure everything comes together for the parade. While we are modest in most aspects of our lives, living in Mason is not one of them. On the morning of a parade, we have the opportunity to brag about our town to the judges. We personally stop the judges by asking them if they have heard about Mason. We then take the opportunity to promote our amazing county. The topics on which we elaborate are our Blue Ribbon School status, our State Champion football title and the blue topaz found only in Mason County. These are just a few of the many great things Mason has to offer, but anyone from Mason knows that we wouldn’t have enough time to explain all of the wonderful aspects of our county.
The Queen’s Court also volunteers at numerous events in the community including the Chamber of Commerce Wild Game Dinner and the Lion’s Club 5k-10K Run. We would like to thank the Chamber of Commerce and Alpha Beta Psi Sorority for the opportunity to serve Mason County. And thanks to our parents and our sponsor, Mrs. Dudney, for their hard work and support.
