Lions Den: ‘Ladies’ had audience in stitches

Bellingham Lion wins coveted Miss Maria Slough crown in Agassiz

Hazel Knutt is new Miss Maria Slough!

What a knockout! Miss Hazel Knutt from one of the Bellingham, Wash. Lions clubs strutted her stuff to victory in Saturday’s Miss Maria Slough gentlemen’s beauty contest.

Slim, sexy, and a total delight, she enthralled her audience from the moment she appeared in her two-piece swimsuit, fish net stockings, and signature long black gloves! It was no contest from then on! And, her boobs do not hang low!

People’s Choice winner, Rescue Randeen, showed just how hot the Agassiz Fire Department can be! Winner of the talent event, her stunning red evening gown ensemble with those fantastic red suede boots was the envy of many of the women in attendance. If only we could look so good in those boots! We really hope to have that red hot Mama back next year. Work on it, Wayne!

Bridget of the Bogs, renowned author and femme fatale, took the first runner up trophy on behalf of the Agassiz-Harrison Lions. What a lady! What a past! Her Scottish sword dance performance, complete with the courage of a “wee drap o’ Glenfiddich”, had the audience in stitches. Autographed copies of her autobiography “Between the Sheets” are still available!

Miss Cherry Applebottom, sponsored for the second year by the Red Apple, won the Miss Congeniality award. Congrats Cherry!

The Lions thank all of you who came and enjoyed our evening’s competition.  We hope we fulfilled our promise of an evening’s fun and laughter in support of our various community service works. We had a grand time doing it.

See you all next year at the best pageant event in the valley – Miss Maria Slough gentlemen’s beauty contest!
