Queen of the Bay contestants with reigning Queen

The seven lovely contestants competing in the Queen of the Bay Pageant visited "La Isla Bonita" on Tuesday for a photo shoot and lunch, hosted by Mayor Elsa Paz. Accompanying the contestants was the reigning Queen of the Bay, Shajira Sajia of Corozal Town. Also joining this bevy of beauties were members of the coordinating body, chaperons, and a pageant photographer.

    The photo shoot was held on the pristine beach at Ramonís Village, and pictures from this session will be used to select this yearís Miss Photogenic. The seven contestants are: Dilcia Trejo from San Pedro Town, Sherima Usher from Stann Creek, Karen Hyde from Albert Division in Belize City, Ashanti Sutherland from Corozal, Jasmine Anderson from Placencia, Georgetta Edwards from Ladyville, and Darina Rodriguez from Sandhill.

    Following their photo shoot, the contestants joined San Pedro Town Mayor Elsa Paz for a delectable lunch at Calientť Restaurant, before touring the island via golf carts.

    The Queen of the Bay contestants also participated in other activities leading up to the pageant including: the Little Miss Carnival Pageant in Belize City, the official sashing ceremonies at the Government House in Belize City, a courtesy call to the Governor General of Belize Sir Colville Young, a visit to the Prime Minister of Belize Said Musa, and a guided tour and luncheon at the Police Academy in Belmopan.

    The ladies have also been very busy rehearsing for the pageant. This gala event is scheduled for Saturday, September 4th at 7:00 p.m. at the Belize City Center. Contestants will compete in talent, swimsuit, and evening gown categories. Each of the ladies must also perform a special pageant curtsey, participate in the "Patriotic March," and endure a question and answer session. On Wednesday, September 1st, the contestants were formally introduced to the public during the official opening ceremonies of the September Celebrations in Belize City.

    Through this medium, the San Pedro Town Council (sponsor for the enchanting Miss Dilcia Trejo) invites all residents to support the islandís beauty ambassador by attending the pageant. An excursion is being planned for this event. Anyone wanting to accompany them on this trip, may call the SPTC at 226-2198.
