Quotes from Elizabeth:  “I am so honored to represent the beautiful state of Maine in Chicago at the Mrs International Pageant.  I would love the support of the people and local businesses to help me prepare for this competition and cheer me on.”  

“This year, our state did not have a local pageant for this competition due to a change in directorship.  Instead this was a process of very extensive interviews and so forth with the pageant’s national director.”

“ I am very honored to represent our state in Chicago. If you would like me to appear at your function, host or speak, please just contact me via http://www.mrsmaineinternational.com/.  When I was Mrs Maine United States 2006, I made over 700 appearances locally and nationally and signed just a little over 30,000 autographs.  I look forward to that type of participation again this year.”

“The Mrs International Pageant is an tremendously outstanding pageant for married women around the world.  It has an interview competition, aerobic wear and evening gown, but it is very different in that the participants all must have a platform to speak about that is near and dear to their heart. The pageant at a national level is teamed with Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association.  Our family knows the first hand trauma of heart and stroke issues with my dad now  a 6 year stroke survivor.”
