THERE SHE IS!

New Jersey State Queens. To the right, she

of our lovely Queen.



The Queen reigns, long live the Queen! A capacity crowd filled the Concert Venue Theater at Harrah's in Atlantic City, on Wednesday, June 25th, where 14 fabulous ladies graced the stage to compete for the coveted title of MS NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA 2008, and lovely Jo Ann Gordon won. A retired public school teacher of 38 years, Jo Ann taught in the Neptune Township School System where she learned sign language in order to participate in the hearing impairment and special education programs.
A big band style singer, she has sung backup for Paul Anka, toured Europe, and has recorded CDs. For her talent, she sang an arrangement of a Nat King Cole standard, "Orange Colored Sky" that rocked the house!


National finals to determine who will be MS SENIOR AMERICA 2008 will also take place at Harrah's during the week of October 19-25, and Jo Ann will represent the Garden State. Jo Ann says she is looking forward to meeting other talented delegates from around the country. She believes that women over 60 who live in the "age of elegance"can make a big difference in people's lives both younger and older than themselves. Good luck, girl. Your New Jersey Cameo Club sisters are very proud of you!
