Greetings Everyone!

The Hopkins County Relay for Life Committee has added an adult prom as a new fundraising event this year. This event is open to the public for ages 18 and up. The theme is "A Royal Affair." The event will be at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 24 at the Madisonville City Park Clubhouse.

This is the adults chance to relive their youth and have fun! Formal attire is not required. All Occasions Formals is offering special discounts, if you want to splurge. A free 4x6 prom photo will be given to those purchasing advance $15 single or $25 couple tickets.

A free boutonniere or corsage will also be given to survivors with their advance purchase, when they mention they are a survivor. If you would like to get involved, the relay committee needs volunteers and teams to participate in fundraising! Please visit the Facebook Page or contact me for info. Save the Date: Friday, September 13 for Relay 2019.

Have you ever thought about doing a pageant? The Miss & Mister Nebo Pageant is the perfect opportunity for you! We are a local, fun pageant that focuses on community service and natural beauty, not dress size or brand names. We are looking for contestants who want to make a difference, do community service projects and participate in area events.

In the Miss & Mister Nebo and AmeriFest US Festival Pageants, the top three in each age group will win a title and advance to the next pageant. We also have overall supreme titles that advance. Our Queens receive Miss America crowns.

This is an official state preliminary that is open to Kentucky residents. We have divisions for all ages, even ladies 65 and up, including Ms., Mrs., Modern Plus Teen, Miss and Woman and boys 0-11 years. The pageants will be on Saturday, August 17 at the Nebo Community Center. Proceeds will benefit Relay for Life. If you'd like to join our Nebo Royalty Team, let me know.

This is our 4th year supporting Relay for Life. We will also be recognizing survivors at our event. Please let me know if you can attend. Help us spread the word about our event.

Make it a family affair by entering the Relay for Life Sports Madness Costume Contest. The public is also invited to participate and support their favorite sports teams in a fun Outfit of Choice Costume Contest fundraiser for $15. (Cheerleadering is also a sport.)

Vendor spaces are available at the pageant for direct sale companies to showcase jewelry, makeup, home d├ęcor, attire, bows, crafts and more. Opportunities are also available for hair and makeup vendors. Please like and visit our Facebook Page: Miss & Mister Nebo Pageant or call Pat Vincent at 270-399-1578 for info.

Have you heard about the upcoming 2020 Census? The Hopkins County Census Committee wants to make sure you are informed about the importance of this event that takes place every 10 years.

Watch for them at local events. We want to make sure that every person is counted in Hopkins County. The main event takes place in April 2020 with Census Day; however, many activities are already planned to raise awareness about how you can make a difference and impact your community's and schools funding opportunities. If you need a job, there are opportunities available online to apply.
