MS NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA PAGEANT 2021!
The waiting is over and plans for the MS NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA PAGEANT 2021 are underway. Due to the COVID-19 virus, other State Pageant Directors have been struggling with how to hold their PAGEANTS this year. Some have been virtual, while others have appointed their Queen. But not so in New Jersey. Administrator Johanne Santori/MSNJSA'06, and Director of Pageants/Terry Meade, decided that the PAGEANT will be held live, and is scheduled for Thursday, June 3rd, 1:00 PM at the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center, in the Ballroom, 815 Route 37 West, in Toms River.
This was an apres NJCC Showcase photo op, at Spring Oaks, in February of 2020, just before the "great pandemic" broke out. The theme was centered around Valentine's Day, and the ladies wore red. It still wasn't sure then whether any quarantine would go into effect. That Showcase was even more memorable because ADMINISTRATOR Johanne Santori/MSNJSA'06, returned to performing with the NEW JERSEY CAMEO CLUB, after overcoming a year long battle with cancer.
The last NEW JERSEY CAMEO CLUB Christmas Party, was in December, 2019. Dr. Al Mott, the founder of the MS SENIOR AMERICA PAGEANT sat amongst this sea of beauties! During the year 2020, the majority of the "Sisters" have received the vaccine and there have been no deaths caused be the dreaded disease.
Governor Murphy has decreed that Atlantic City theaters must still remain "dark" until further notice, but hotels are still open. For this reason, this year's PAGEANT has been moved up north to Ocean County, at the Clarion Hotel & Conference Center, in Toms River. Their Ballroom allows for ample distance seating for the audience. Tickets are now on sale at $15.00 for all seats, and can be purchased in advance by calling Terry Meade at: 908-216-8534, or by email: email@example.com. In order to attend, the public must wear facial masks. The event is rated general and is suitable for the entire family.
MS NEW JERSEY SENIOR AMERICA, INC., a 501c3 non profit organization, is accepting donations from patrons wishing to sponsor the annual event. The PAGEANT is the search for "that gracious lady, 60 and over, who best exemplifies the dignity, maturity and inner beauty of all senior Americans." If interested, please contact Terry Meade.
