I had the great pleasure of attending the Miss Rodeo Iowa and Miss Teen Rodeo Iowa Coronations. Heidi Gansen, MRI 2011, had her coronation on January 22, 2011 in Dubuque, Iowa. Charity Howk, MTRI 2011, had her coronation on February 12, 2011 in Bloomfield, Iowa.
Heidi had a great turn out for her coronation. She had many silent and live auction items. There were many great items that I would have loved to take home that's for sure! One item was the cake I had made and decorated and it sold for $45. I was very excited! I was even daring enough, while wearing a white dress, to show the cake as it was being auctioned off. It was sad to see Jordanne pass down the crown, she did such a great job representing Iowa and was a great roll model. Heidi has big shoes to fill, but she will do a wonderful job!
Watching Hannah pass down the title to Charity was sad as well, Hannah did a great job as Miss Teen Rodeo Iowa however I have great confidence that Charity will do a great job as well. I think the night was special for Kimber Dall too. She shared a story with everyone about her experience with Charity from the beginning. Her first encounter with Charity was during Charity's freshman year of Iowa High School Rodeo when she competed for the title of Miss Iowa High School Rodeo Queen. Charity came into the pageant with outdated clothes and makeup but when the scores came in that girl with the outdated clothes and makeup had won! Kimber has had the chance to watch Charity grow and develop as a rodeo queen when she competed her junior year to have the title for her senior year. The night was closed out with an auction, Charity had tons of great items. In fact I did my part in supporting and bought a shirt, necklace and boot bag! I also made Charity as cake as well.
God Bless and Happy Trails,
