Lauzon crowned Emo Fair Queen

Tears and cheers were in abundance Thursday night as 15-year-old Kayla Lauzon of Barwick was crowned Emo Fair Queen 2005 at the Emo-La Vallee Community Centre.
She was presented with a purple robe and crown from 2004 Queen Trisha Wilson as bubbles blew and cameras flashed.
Lauzon was one of the youngest ever to claim the crown. The occasion also marked a full circle of sorts for her because 10 years ago, she was the Mini-Queen at the fair.
Sierra Woolsey of Emo was named First Princess while the Second Princess was Ashley Nordin of Stratton.
Ashley Richardson of Devlin was voted Miss Congeniality and also was presented with the Dorothy Bonot Award.
In addition to the crown and a number of gift certificates, Lauzon received a cheque for $300.
The fair queen and princesses were chosen based on their scores in five categories: banner, interview, fashion show, float, and entertainment.
Lauzon took first place in the banner and interview categories, and second place in the fashion show, the float, and entertainment to post the highest overall score.
The Emo Fair runs today through Saturday. See Wednesday’s Times for a full schedule of events.
