“We are often inspired by the youth of our town,” said Mayor Senna Mosley. “We have many gifted, energetic children who would make us proud to represent La Vergne. We are pleased that we can offer this marvelous opportunity to all of our kids. The winners will be special guests at the Old Timers Festival and at events throughout their year-long reign.”
Additionally a special Ms. and Mr. Old Timer pageant is scheduled on September 11 for ages 55 and up. That entry fee is $25 and the pageant will be held at the Multipurpose Building behind City Hall.
