Queen for a Day Winners Announced
The official Queen for A Day event was held on Saturday, April 25th at
The Trading Post Community Care Center. The contest was embraced by the surrounding communities with many choosing to write
and submit the 150 word essay nominating a dear mother, sister, daughter, friend or neighbor. This year's nominees were many
and came from a wide variety of ages and situations.
An unbiased committee went through all applications and had the heart-wrenching decision
of choosing this year's two winners. The chosen two were: Carol, from Springville and Michelle, from West Valley.
The Sandy Fund, The Trading Post, and Root 39 Salon gathered together with numerous
businesses within our area to make a special day happen for these two individuals fit to be a queen. Two individuals who are
especially unique in their ways. Resilience is a quality that was admired this year in Carol, who despite her own challenges,
lovingly takes care of her elderly Mom with open arms and Michelle, a mom of four, who's strengths and accomplishments are
This year the two Queens began with a special breakfast in their honor and were gifted
with baskets, quilts, bags and gift certificates. Then off they went for some pampering at Root 39 Salon. After the Queens
had their makeovers, they headed over to a waiting table at Julie's Pizzeria for lunch.
Thank you to the many area businesses who gave generously with gifts and certificates
to help make this memorable day happen. A special thanks for the continued partnership with several businesses: Root 39 Salon,
Julie's Pizzeria, S&N Eileen's Florist, The Oasis Bed & Breakfast, Wal-Mart and Tops Markets. Additional support was
given this year by Shear Brilliance, Waterman's Greenhouse, Movie Gallery, Blasdell Pizza, Cascade Lanes, Pat McIlvenna with
Stitches of Love charity quilters, The Trading Post and the Sandy Fund.
We look forward to next year's contest!
