"The Miss Boston 2012 Pageant" is coming!

Ciao bella,
Last year was a remarkable experience just attending the Miss Boston Pageant! I can just imagine how exciting an opportunity like this can be for some of our locally planted girls. Just the idea that your personal opinion and appearance as a contestant makes history around our treasured Commonwealth is reason to go for the title Miss Boston 2012. There will also be over $5000 in scholarships and prizes. You will see girls from Harvard to local work places striving to be the best they can be so they can represent our Commonwealth in fashion! Home to the Miss Boston 2012 Pageant is The Omni Parker House. The event starts at 5:00 PM on Sunday, February 19th. You may purchase tix online at There will be 5 stages of competition, talent, showcase, interview, physical fitness, eveningwear and onstage interview. The girls are all wonderful to watch!

The history of the MB Pageant has provided a stage for young women to achieve their personal, professional and educational goals. Girls from 17-24 years old will compete for the MB title. The Miss Boston pageant is the official preliminary for the Miss America Pageant and Miss Massachusetts program. The Miss America organization is one of the nation's lead achievement programs and world's largest provider of scholarship assistance providing over $45 million for young women! Sara Carlisle the 2011 Miss Boston winner will share her fabulous experience and hand over the crown! Thank you Sara for representing the Hub with such grace, talent and style!

Valentine quote for the week: "Love is like a beautiful song, echoes on in the heart when the last note is silent." Happy Valentine's Day everyone -- XX.

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
