Only twelve more days until the the crowning of the new Beaver Queen, and the folks at Beaver Lodge Local 1504 are getting so excited, they're slapping tails left and right. In fact, they'll be getting an early start on the festivities by cleaning up the old Beaver Pond behind the Compare Foods store on Avondale Drive this Sunday, June 1, from 9 am to noon. Folks from Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association and The Scrap Exchange will also be pitching in, and the rumor is that the best stuff hauled out of the pond is going to be used in making a gown for celebrity judge, and former Beaver Queen, Beverly Woody, who is paddling out from California just for the pageant.
No need to RSVP, just show up in the parking lot between Compare/Big Lots and the old K-Mart at 9 am on Sunday, June 1. Gloves and boots highly recommended.
And in case you needed a formal invitation to the Beaver Queen Pageant, here it is.
