Thanks are extended from the program participants to; Ambassadors Taylor Kostiuk and Katelin Marshall for helping to coordinate the fashions for the evening, and to all of the participating businesses for supplying the fashions. Thank you to Tammy Dunstall, Corrie Smith, April Earle and Sandra Simpson for their assistance. A special thank you to the little ladies who did a terrific job of modeling; Taelah Thomas, Aivry Thomas, Sylvie Thomas and Kami French. Thank you to Keith Olsen of Everything Pets for the donation of hanging flower baskets as prizes. An extra special thank you goes to the group of people who have one of the toughest jobs in the program—the panel of judges; Jason Earle, Marg Eyre, Gail Madill and Donna Wilson.
