Thanks From the Miss Greater Rockville Pageant

The pageant was Saturday.

To The Editor:

As you know the 2013 Miss Greater Rockville crowned Saturday night at Rockville High School is Gina Salvatore (Wethersfield) and the Miss Greater Rockville's Outstanding Teen is Jeanette Porcello (South Windsor). The runners-up were (respectively) Ashley Sodipo (South Windsor) and Miranda Van Allen (Bolton). This event was a great success once again this year with six contestants in the “Miss” category and four in the “Teen” category.

On behalf of the Rockville Community Alliance, Inc, and the Miss Greater Rockville Scholarship Organization, I would like to thank the following sponsors, businesses, individuals and groups (in no particular order) for supporting the second Miss Greater Rockville Scholarship Pageant:

These young women have all made the Rockville community proud of them, and while we are sad to see them go, and wish them the very best in the future, we look forward to working with Gina and Jeanette in the coming year.

Again, thanks to everyone who helped to make this event possible and successful!
