When conditions improved, Carol resumed her duties as MS NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA 2012, with an active schedule, and traveled throughout the State, promoting the positive aspects of aging. The current Queen is always the centerpiece of the NEW JERSEY CAMEO CLUB Showcases, and Carol was the featured performer throughout the year. Carol's performances were full of energy and her songs uplifting. She had a way of making people smile and feel happier than they were before.
Carol Dugan has been a wonderful Queen, has served the MS NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA PAGEANT Organization honorably, and has lived up to their highest standards. She has accomplished much, and we are all proud of her.
T'is true that, next week, a new Queen will be chosen, and she will be expected to carry on the traditions of our long lived Pageant just as Carol and her predessors have done. Happilly, Carol will not go away, but will re-emerge anew. She has joined the "Sisterhood" of the NEW JERSEY CAMEO CLUB, where she will continue to use her God-given talent, and hopefully, will become a new voice to propel both the Pageant and Club to new heights!
