After spending countless weekends away visiting other communities in B.C., I got to welcome visiting royalty from all across the province to my home town.
The Miss White Rock pageant and White Rock Youth Ambassador gala was held on Friday, kicking off White Rock’s Spirit of the Sea festivities held annually on the August long weekend.
It was an emotional night, partially because I know the retiring ambassador team very well as I’ve travelled and attended local events with them for the past year.
But the excitement, anxiety and joy I felt was mostly due to the fact that my sister @ChloeWoodin was competing.
And boy did she compete.
She cleaned up all of the program’s awards except for the talent award, winning the public speaking, essay, community quiz and fashion show components as well as the Committee Award.
Even though we (my family and I) knew all along she would win, it was nice to know it officially.
The rest of the weekend happened quickly. All of the sparkleheads attended the dance after the pageant, went down to the beach Saturday morning to check out the vendors and free concerts, and rode in the Torchlight Parade that evening.
I rode in a 1964 Ford convertible Mustang, red of course, with my fellow B.C. Ambassadors.
Like I said, this weekend has been a bit of a blur, but an unforgettable experience nonetheless.
And for the first time in history, two sisters have both won the title of Miss White Rock.
This is only the beginning.
So watch out world, here come the Woodins…
