Ms. Senior California of America, Inc.
As the Ms. Senior California “Age of Elegance” pageant looks forward to a wonderful Christmas season and cele-brating the coming New Year, we want to extend our gratitude to our past Queens, Title Holders, contestants, spon-sors, families, friends and fans, for all their love and support. Ms. Senior California is so blessed to be the largest senior pageant in the nation to bring honor and recognition to all seniors in California.
This past October, Pauline Allen, our State Queen and I traveled to Atlantic City to compete in the Senior America Finals. This is a special year because Senior America is celebrating it’s 40th Anniversary. A whirlwind of fabulous Queens from past national finals were in attendance and all wearing the new gorgeous Ruby tiara signifying the 40th anniversary stone. It was truly a beautiful sight to see. We were so lucky to be a part of the excitement and cele-bration.
Pauline Allen, Ms. Senior California, placed in the top 10, a great honor for California. There were 40 states repre-sented and the competition was fierce as you can imagine. Queen Pauline did an amazing job with her interview and talent presentation. Her gowns were exquisite and she received many compliments from the audience and judges.
The new Ms Senior America 2020, is Esmeralda Ybarra Hetrick, from Harrisburg, Pa. Queen Esmeralda’s winning talent was singing, “It’s My Turn”. I love that title…so appropriate for us, don’t you agree? Esmeralda’s career was in healthcare, community outreach/nonprofit work, publishing and a marketing consultant. What a world of knowledge and talent she brings to our Senior America platform to share with seniors.
Ms. Senior California has scheduled three pageants so far for 2020. A few more are in the works but dates are not confirmed yet. The Ms. Senior San Diego Preliminary pageant will take place at Paradise Village Retirement Resort on February 27th and 28th. The Orange County Preliminary is scheduled on March 27th and 28th at the Norman Murray Senior Center in Mission Viejo. The “Age of Elegance” State Pageant is scheduled on June 20th and 21st, at the Joan Kroc Theatre for Peace and Justice on the University of San Diego campus.
