The scene before the big event was one of nervousness and raw courage, as the Miss Hunt¬ ley contestants readied themselves for their appearance on stage. Miss Huntley - 1985, Melissa Reeves, shared Mr. Bakley's fabulous camper with the three new contenders for the title.
The main event, held on a blistering Sunday afternoon at the Town Picnic, was the climax to many busy days of shopping, writing speech¬ es, trying on gowns and swimsuits and learning how to pivot. "Hold your shoulders back", and 'Sntlle", were phrases heard many times during these rehearsals.
The stairs leading to the stage were fright¬ ening and the edge of the huge semi-trailer
was just too close for comfort. The crowd seemed small, but large in number to one girl, appeared to be only 3 to another and was as frightening as the crowd at a "Title Fight" to the third.
Cindy Doden, Kim Reed and Shelly Mueller were delightful to work with and each equally deserving of the Miss Huntley Title. Unfortun¬ ately there is but one "crown". We hope that all three of these beauties enjoyed £h€ pag¬ eant, have come away with a new outlook on life and have developed some new and lasting friendships.
Thank you girls and "Congratulations Shelly" -"Miss Huntley - 1986".
