The royal wave

A few of Sullivan County's crowned princesses wave from a float at the Liberty Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 27, in this photo by John of Catskills Photography on Flickr. From left to right: Jennifer Nolan, Miss Sullivan County 2013; Tisha Curry, Ms. Sullivan County 2013; Lindsay Cruz, Miss Preteen Sullivan County 2013; and Molly Rampe, Young Miss Sullivan County 2013.

In March, these lovely ladies were crowned at the annual Sullivan County Pageant at the Villa Roma Resort in Callicoon. Throughout their year-long reign, the Misses and Ms-es of Sullivan County volunteer for various local causes: "Go MAD," i.e., "Make A Difference," the Pageant organizers urge.
