Ms. Senior Golden Years USA pageant set for Pahrump

The 14th annual Ms. Senior Golden Years USA pageant is planned for 7 p.m., on July 8 at the Saddle West Hotel and Casino where six contestants are participating.

The six contestants are Dorothy Heintz, Debra Bartlett, Virginia Vignato, JoDee Van Stavern, Maryellen Swarowski, and Carmen Murzyn.

“We have six lovely contestants who are quite lively and we are pleased to have them,” Assistant Director Mitzi Sears said. “The pageant is well known for all that they do in our community. It’s more about the inner beauty and how they present that.”

“The women are judged in the following categories: Interview, 20 percent; Talent, 20 percent; Evening Gown, 20 percent, Platform, 20 percent; and Bathing Suit, 20 percent. If you’ve never been to one of our pageants, you will really enjoy this one.”

Sears said each of the ladies has their own platform, which they will explain to the audience during the evening.

“You will understand the variety of their interests and what each of them will do in our community,” Sears said. “It does not end with the pageant, we all continue to do volunteer work as long as we are able. The Queen’s Court has approximately 55 active members and we continue to do all that we can to assist in our community.”

The pageant began in 2002 with the first pageant being held in 2003 by its founder and executive director, B.J. Hetrick-Irwin.
