A Party, a Parade & More!
Posted on: December 4, 2017 | Posted by: Andy Turner
The last we heard from Stephanee Corcoran she was amazing in Chicago, but she and other people we support in St. Peters and St. Charles, Missouri, have kept busy with a variety of activities, including a parade, Halloween party and a trip to a farm.
Stephanee, who won Missouri’s Miss Amazing Senior Division in Nov. 2016 to qualify for the national event this past summer in Chicago, represented the pageant in The St. Louis Thanksgiving Day Parade. During the event, Stephanee met St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson and posed for group and individual photos with other Missouri royalty, including Mrs. Missouri, Miss Metro St. Louis, Senior Mrs. Missouri, Miss River City, and Mrs. United States.
For Halloween, Stephanee’s roommates in St. Peters hosted a costume party and invited people Bethesda supports in St. Louis and St. Charles.
“It is a potluck dinner, and all of the individuals bring food to contribute to the meal,” said program manager Blossom Mahan. “We had several staff work together on the day of the party, and the day before, to decorate the in preparations for the party.”
On Oct. 1, people Bethesda supports in St. Louis and St. Charles visited Eckerts Farm in Belleville, Illinois. They picked apples, went on a hayride and had dinner at Silver Creek Saloon.
“All individuals enjoy this annual trip and always bring home large bags of apples,” Blossom says. “The staff assist the individuals in coming up with ways to use the apples, but one thing is for sure, apple pie is a must!”
