Ladies Night Out at the Branch 139 Legion welcomed guests to an Italian dinner, live music by Oren Barter, and a fashion show last week.

BFF Fashions, Cariboo Spurs and Suzanne’s and Jenny’s provided 50 outfits with accessories, and volunteer models showcased a wide range of fashion options to the audience, with legion president Joyce Norberg acting as announcer.

Joyce Norberg said that she had a wonderful time at the event, was thrilled with the turnout and that audience consensus indicated that another Ladies Night Out should take place in October.

Kyra Stuart, Miss M.H. King Excavating Ltd, Rachel Abrahamse, Miss Daybreak Rotary and Karina Sukert, Miss Rotary Club Williams Lake joined other local women to model for the fashion show.

Kyra was modeling for BFF Fashions on Oliver Street, Rachel modeled for Suzanne’s and Jenny’s in Hodgson Mall and Karina modeled for Cariboo Spurs on Broadway Avenue.

With only month to go, Karina said that the Stampede Queen candidate season has gone by very quickly.

“On one hand, I’m really excited for the finale, and on the other I’m not – I love spending time with these ladies,” she said.

Rachel said the season has been both very busy and very fun. “We’ve been doing a lot in the community together, and have learned so much,” she stated. “It’s been a lot of fun.”

Kyra said the season has been ‘amazing.’ “We came in here three strangers and now we’re best friends. I’ve learned so much. One thing that surprised me in all this is that I had the will power to speak up in front of big groups of people,” she explained. “I didn’t think that I could ever do it.”

Karina said that one thing that has stood out for her in the Stampede Queen candidacy is how much younger children look up to you. “At the indoor rodeo we had all these little girls coming to get our autographs on pieces of paper towel. I felt like a celebrity,” she said.

“When you’re just walking down the street with your friends they kind of look at you and say,

‘You’re so tall,’ but when you have that tiara on your head they say, ‘Wow, you shine.’” at the Branch 139 Legion welcomed guests to an Italian dinner, live music by Oren Barter, and a fashion show last we
