We also have beauticians who have volunteered to do hair, make-up, and nails. This is a formal pageant. We do have a group of individuals who have donated dresses for this event if you are interested. You will need to contact Cindy Henn, chairwoman, for any of the above needs. We will be including these contestants on stage with our Fairest of the Fair contestants. As with the Fairest of the Fair, contestants must be Franklin County residents.
