Ms. Senior Missouri Pageant set Sunday

The Ms. Senior Missouri Pageant will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 12, at the Florissant Civic Theater, 1 James Eagan Drive.

The Missouri Pageant Alumnae Club will present the pageant, “The Best of Times Is Now,” which is for women who reside in Missouri and are at least 60 years old, according to a news release.

The contestant who best exhibits the elegance, poise and maturity of today’s woman over 60 will be crowned as this year’s queen.

The winner will represent the state of Missouri in the Ms. Senior America Pageant in October.
