As a former Mrs. Oregon America (1988-yikes that was a lifetime ago!), it is always fun to return to the pageant and see the crowning of the next lucky lady. Last night it was Mrs. West Linn, Joy Huston who got the shock of her life as her name was called as Mrs. Oregon 2010.
The evening began with a truly impressive ac-cappella rendition of our national anthem by outgoing 2009 queen Joelle Rankin-Goodwin. Then the competition phase of the pageant began (that's Joelle backstage ready to rock the house!).
Former Mrs. Oregons greeted their new sister queen to the fold after the pageant. Joy got a taste of what the year ahead will be like as she posed for tons of pictures with family, friends, and fans.
Thank you Mrs. Oregon director Libby Crawford for a wonderful event. Joy is cetainly in for the year of a lifetime!
