This enchanting evening included an impressive spread of food, festive decorations and a reception for pageant participants and their families.

On Friday, March 24th, a packed crowd of residents and family members gathered at The Folsom Center for Rehabilitation and Health Care to support their loved ones. This enchanting evening included an impressive spread of food, festive decorations and a reception for pageant participants and their families.

Five contestants boldly stepped out of their comfort zones and decided to participate in the Folsom Center’s beauty pageant.

A dapperly dressed gentleman escorted each of the ladies as they took a stroll across the floor, showcasing their beautiful evening gowns. Contestants answered a randomly-drawn interview question and gave the crowd a little life advice. Answers moved the crowd to tears and laughter as each woman recalled her fondest memories spent with the love of her life or seeing her babies for the first time. It truly was an enchanting evening, complete with beautiful decorations and even different shirts adorned with glitter worn by the staff.

Folsom Center Activities Director Shana Marsh summed things up best:

“There are no words to describe how rewarding it was to see our residents all dolled up. The confidence they had was powerful. One of my residents wore mascara for the first time in 98 years of life. I am so proud of each and every one of our ladies.”

Miriam Kelley was a judges favorite and a crowd favorite as well. For a tiny lady, she sure has a big personality. She walked with elegance and grace and looked gorgeous in her cream colored dress and sparkling shoes. Ms. Kelley crowned by the beautiful and talented Elaine Willingham. Mrs. Willingham is the reigning Ms.Senior Cullman County and Ms. Senior Alabama. She represented Cullman County and the state of Alabama proudly at the Ms.Senior America pageant in Atlantic City, where she placed in the top 3.
