Corn School Queen
To the Editor:
The new LaGrange County Corn School Queen Contest Committee would like to take the time to thank everyone that helped make this year a success.
We would also like to thank everyone for their patience with us. As we learn the ropes we hope you will continue to be patient with us.
First of all we would like to thank Patty Mullen for sticking by us and holding the guiding light for us. Without Patty, we would have been left completely in the dark. We can’t express how much we appreciate her and all that she does! Thanks again, Patty!
We would also like to take the time to congratulate all of our beautiful contestants. We hope you ladies all had a wonderful time, and hope to see most of your smiling faces again next year.
