Since she was crowned Ms New Jersey Senior America 2008, Jo Ann Gordon has been one busy queen. In the first photo she is laughing at Mayor Stephen C. Acropolis of Brick, as he told a joke. Afterward, he read a proclamation of appreciation to Jo Ann on behalf of his Office and the Brick Town Council. Next, she and NJ State Pageant Director Johanne Santori stand in between the "Beatles", in the lobby of the Tropicana. She and Johanne were guests of radio show host Pinky Kravitz, which airs in the Atlantic City area. Below, Jo Ann smiles broadly as does host Mike Moran of WJRZ-FM Sunday morning show, "Down the Shore". Lovely Jo Ann at home standing in front of her piano. Lastly, Jo Ann, carrying a delicious culinary delight prepared by the head chef at "A Taste of Atlantic City".

Besides, these events, she has been in several parades around the State, and continues to sing with the New Jersey Cameo Club Showcases. Next week, she will compete with other State queens for the coveted title of Ms Senior America 2008, at Harrah's in Atlantic City. All of her NJ Cameo Club "sisters" are excited and proud of their queen and wish her the best. In their eyes, she is already a winner.

Pageant week is full of many exciting activites, and the public is cordially invited to attend any and all events beginning Sunday, October 19th through Friday, 24th. Of special interest is the parade on the boardwalk, which starts at 3:00pm. All the State delegates will ride in cars, and there will be music, floats and marching bands. On Monday, the National Cameo Club Showcase will be held in the Eden Lounge. On Tuesday, is the "Welcome to Atlantic City Show" in the Concert Venue Theater. The 2 preliminary pageants are on Wednesday and Thursday, and the Final Competition, on Friday, also in the theater. With the exception of the parade, all shows begin at 1:00 pm.
