"Mrs. Colorado Day" BBQ

Former Governor, Bill Owens, bestowed the Mrs. Colorado Pageant with an "Honorary Proclamation" proclaiming June 13, 2001 as "Mrs. Colorado Day." This was done to honor the commitment made by this organization to our communities and state.
Raeanne Duca, Mrs. Colorado 2000 and owner of the Royal Image Boutique, was kind enough to host a BBQ at her home in honor of "Mrs. Colorado Day". It was a wonderful evening enjoyed by good company and delicious food.
Winning the title of Mrs. Colorado not only gives one lucky woman a year the opportunity to represent our state at Mrs. America and make multiple appearances on behalf of this organization, but it allows the chance to become a "Queen Sister." Former pageant director, Tricia Dampier, created such a fantastic environment for her queens that they never want to leave. Over time, a "family" was created and is now being carried on by the new director Emily Stark. I have said it before, and I'll say it a million times more during my reign....I am honored to be a part of this group of women who I respect and admire so much. Pictured above are 9 of us in the Mrs. Colorado sisterhood.

Of course we couldn't have a "Mrs. Colorado Day" without this handsome group of men....our "Mr. Colorado's." The men weren't too excited about this picture at first, but I just couldn't resist making them all pose. It's nice to recognize these great guys in our lives, and tell them thanks for being such great "pageant hubbies"!
