From the Lions Den: Audience participation wanted

Miss Maria Slough competition offers unusual beauty contest

We have the “lovely” contestants, three extraordinarily competent judges, and now we need you – the audience – for the most hilarious evening the valley has all year, the Miss Maria Slough Contest.

Not only do we offer delightful beauties, we have prizes up for grabs in the basket raffle and silent auction. Boy, do we have prizes! The businesses and residents of Agassiz and the surrounding communities have outdone themselves in helping the Lions make this an evening not to be missed. Bid on a “Know Your Town” tree loaded with passes and other goodies designed to take you and your family to visit local merchants and services you may not know about. Dig into a hand-made planter. There’s even a “souper” deal on a crock pot!

New this year – the Kritter Konk. In between the real action, you can try your hand konking the assorted friendly kritters off their perch in the Ag Hall foyer. We promise good fun ably overseen by our Agassiz Scouts. As usual, all proceeds go toward supporting our community service efforts.

Still thinking of having your group try for the crown? Contact Joey at 604-796-9951 for entry deadlines and details.

Tickets for the most talked about evening the Lions hosts are available from Jean 604-794-7503 or Darcy at Lordco.

Support the Agassiz-Harrison Lions, support your community!
