Goodbye from Queen Hannah

I will never forget the night I was crowned Queen, and given the honour of representing the North Thompson Valley

Retiring Miss North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Queen 2011/2012

Dear readers;

As the summer season is slowly coming to an end, and the North Thompson Fall Fair has arrived, the time has come for me to say goodbye as your Miss  North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Queen 2011/2012.

Eighteen months ago, when I joined this program, I never could have imagined that this simple act alone would have such a rewarding impact on my life. I have not only conquered my fear of public speaking,  but have met so many new and exciting people, and ultimately, grown into a strong and confident young woman.

I will never  forget the night I was crowned Queen, and given the honour of representing the North Thompson Valley.  Since then I have had the pleasure of travelling to nine different, beautiful communities.

I would like to take this time to share some of my fondest memories that never fail to put a smile on my  face.

Our first out of town trip to the serene, lake-side community of Peachland was one of my personal favorites. We had the chance to visit a parrot sanctuary that sheltered several unique parrots. It was heart touching to see how much the owners did for the parrots and continue to do on a daily basis.

It was also at Peachland that we met some of the other visiting royalty and started to develop strong friendships with these wonderful individuals.

One of my most entertaining trips included traveling to the historical city  of Quesnel and taking part in the famous Billy Barker Days. Attending the midway, riding in the parade, and running around downtown Quesnel made for a noteworthy time with some good laughs.

I would now like to extend my appreciation to the people that have made this year possible, and supported me throughout my candidacy and reign.

To my sponsors the Lower North Thompson Catholic Women’s League;  you are all outstanding women, your faith and commitment to your town inspires me greatly.

To the committee, thank you for everything you do for this program, and for always believing in me.

Finally, to my family, you have kept me from falling from day one, you are all so full of love and kindness, and I cannot thank you enough for everything you do for me.

Although my time as your Queen is coming to an end, I will cherish the memories, and continue to support the program.

The time has come to say goodbye, but the North Thompson Valley will always be my home, because like they say, “Home is Where the Heart Is”.

All my love,

Miss North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo Queen 2011/2012, Hannah Allen
