On the heels of the scandal that erupted behind the scenes on Saturday night following the Pageant after-party, Ms. Kaferine de Nerve and her partner in crime Ms. Andrews have
fled the country in order to stay one step ahead of the law gone to commune with their higher selves.
So it falls to me to bring you the good news.
We have a new Queen!
Please join us in congratulating Furrah Gnawsett-Major on her elevation to the throne.
And let us not neglect the rest of the Queen’s Court:
Best Tail: Dr. Henrietta Jekyll & Mrs. Beaver
Best Talent: Bailar Beaver
Best Stage Presence: Taco Belle
Best Bribes: Down Under Beaver
Miss Hygeniality: Marilyn Damho
And in an alignment of popular and professional taste, Furrah Gnawsett-Major was also this year’s recipient of the People’s Choice Award.
We extend our deepest gratitude to Frank Stasio for his superb job as Master of Ceremonies. John Parton left behind an enormous tail to fill in that role, and while he is sorely missed, the whole lodge agrees that Frank was simply awesome.
We’ll back throughout the week with your pictures and videos of the 2012 Pageant. And we thank all of you for your support of the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association, Beaver Lodge Local 1504, and beavers everywhere.
