Chisholm crowned Miss Owen

Nineteen contestants had entered Saturday’s Miss Owen County Fair Pageant. The runner ups were announced and then it was down to two contestants. Master of Ceremonies Billy O’Banion paused before announcing the first runner-up, when shouts of “Go ‘Queen V!’” came from the quiet crowd.

The shout signaled support for hometown girl Veronica Chisholm, who would walk away with the sash and crown. Chisholm was only one of two Owen County residents competing in the pageant.
