It”s hard to believe a year has already passed.Time flys when you’re having fun. Being chosen to represent the city of Rayne was a huge honor. As my reign comes to an end, I look back with so many fond memories of my year as Ms. Ray*La*Ne. Traveling to fairs and festivals, meeting new people, and having fun with all of the Queens from our beautiful state were among the highlights of my year. And it could not have been done without the help of many people.
I would like to thank our mayor, Jim Petitjean, for all his support in everything he does for our wonderful city, as well as for Festival Ray*La*ne. Good luck to you in all your future endeavor’s. There are no words to describe what an important part you play in making Rayne a place we are all proud to call home. God bless to you and your family.
