February 2020

On Sunday, Feb. 23, Bailey Feistner was crowned the SD USA Ambassador Jr. Queen 2020. The contest was held over the weekend at the Canton Performing Arts Center in Canton. 

The USA Ambassador Pageant is a charity driven organization that promotes Success through Leadership, Integrity, Character and Confidence in today’s young women. Bailey competed in a traditional interview, modeled an outfit that is fashionable for a girl of her age, modeled a floor length evening gown, and completed an onstage chat.  Additionally, she completed an optional competition with a 90-second advertisement on her hometown. Bailey highlighted Woonsocket as a picturesque town with a beautiful lake that is small on population but big on heart! With the title, Feistner is now qualified to compete at the National Competition in July of 2020 in Florida.

On Wednesday, Feb. 19, eight women gathered at Spirit of Faith Lutheran-Methodist Church to fill 36 gently used purses with hygiene products for Church on the Street in Sioux Falls. Purses were collected for several weeks through donations, and a Thrivent $250 grant was used to purchase hygiene products. Many donated items were also given such as socks and soap. Two bags for men were also completed, and three blankets placed into larger homemade bags with loop handles for easier carrying were also sent.
