The theme for this years’ Ms. Senior Colorado pageant was “Puttin’ on the Glitz”. The pageant was held in the theater of the Pinnacle Charter School on June 22, 2013. Eleven ladies competed for the title of Ms. Senior Colorado, and each of them was judged in four very distinct categories. Those categories included the evening gown presentation, a personal interview with the panel of judges, a talent competition, and a description of their “Philosophy of Life”which wasshared with both the judges and the audience.
The “Philosophy of Life” portion of the competition allowed the judges and audience to have an insight into the contestants personality, their attitude toward life and the various challenges one faces, and the inner beauty of these elegant ladies.
The talent competition can include music, dance, poetry, art or any other special skills the ladies would like to share with the audience. The diversity and quality of the talent was most impressive. Darla Lamb danced the mambo to “Mambo Italiano” and Teresa Sandoval danced a samba to “Bailamos” Gail Hamilton was led on stage by her seeing eye dog and sang “Nessun Sorma”,a beautiful Aria. Norma Rachlin demonstrated herartisticskills by painting “White Sandy Beaches” in her allotted time of 90 seconds, and Pat McHenry demonstrated her belly dancing skills.
The mission statement of Ms Senior Colorado pageant is to find “The gracious lady who best exemplifies the dignity, maturity, and inner beauty of all Senior Americans”. Ultimately Debbie Buczkowski who was chosen Ms. Senior Colorado in 2012, turned her reign over to Gail Hamilton, the newly crowned Ms. Senior Colorado 2013. Gail will now compete in the Ms. Senior America competition to be held in Atlantic City, New Jersey later this year. From all of us at Prime Time for Seniors, we wish Gail the the greatest success in the upcoming pageant as well asthe wide variety of activities she will be involved with in the upcoming year. Congratulations!
