The MERCER COUNTY SENIOR AMERICA PAGEANT Organization held a "Community Mother's Award Brunch," on Sunday afternoon May 6th, at the Trenton War Memorial. Eleven women were honored for their commitment to preserving family values, and for their dedication to make life better for their community, city and State. The woman came from all walks of life and included: local and State politicians, community activists, a radio personality, senior beauty pageant queens, a minister, and an educator. The celebration was the "brainchild" of Lawaner Wilkins Sykes, who served as emcee.
Johanne and QUEEN Carolyn came down from the stage and joined their "sisters" to sing "With Love, From Motown". Josephine Araniti invited everyone in the room to stand up and participate. She showed them all the "signature moves" to make while singing the 3 song medley. It turned out to be a great fun activity, and broke up the solemnity of the occasion for a just little while.
Then, Lawaner asked each lady a question on various aspects of motherhood, and they answered based upon their life experiences.
Lawaner thanked the Committee for all their hard work to make the afternoon a success, and she invited everyone to get out of their seats and mingle with each other in the time remaining. A great time was had by all, and once again, congratulations to Johanne and Carolyn!
