Subject: Queen pageants need volunteers

If no one comes forward to serve as pageant directors, there will be no World Festival Queen pageant this year, the Hog Capital Festival Committee said Friday.

The committee announced this week that Candi Strandberg, director of the Junior Miss pageant, and World Festival Queen Pageant directors Jean Russell and Jennifer DeMay had resigned from their posts due to other commitments.

"The committee is stretched to the limit," said Jeff Finney and Robin Resch, co-chairs of the festival committee's executive board, "and unless someone steps forward to help, the event will have to be dropped from the schedule."

The committee's executive board discussed the positive aspects that the queens and their courts add to the Labor Day weekend festival but can see no alternative, Finney and Resch said.

The executive board agreed this week to publicize the situation and see if anyone in the community would express interest in directing the pageants.

Anyone interested can call festival committee member Kaye Finney at 540-9571, or any other executive board member, by the next regular festival committee meeting Tuesday.

Board members are Finney, Resch, Anne Murchison, Arlene McNaught, Lee Neuleib and Kaye Finney, vice chairpersons; Ruth Neuleib, treasurer; and Larry Flannery, secretary.

"If there appears to be no interest, it will be recommended to the full committee Tuesday that the pageants be dropped for this year," Finney and Resch said. "A majority vote by the full committee is the final authority on the matter."

The committee chairs said the issue must be decided this month because of deadlines for brochure printing and other time factors that involve advance planning and promotion
