CHERRY GROVE’S NEW HOMECOMING QUEEN
BEACH DE BREE BREEZES THROUGH ELECTION
IN UNANIMOUS DECISION
Welcome to the Big Top – you better behave
The event has gotten bigger than its venue. It was SRO at the Community House. which looked like more than Martha Pitkin’s’stated APCG membership over 350 members. The energy was palpable. According to Bella “we have all had such a terrible winter. This is the official start of summer”
President Coco Love enthused:”What incredible, wonderful energy between the community and the Arts Project. All our contestants do so much for the community, they are all winners”.

The Welcoming Committee
Our Ultra Glam Homecoming Queen 2009, Urban Sprawl
Urban Sprawl reflected how many people who used to pass him and nod “hello” now actually came up to chat with him, and talk about things – “It made me feel important but more than that it wasn’t just frivolous. It means a lot to the community – I have spoken with other Queens and they experienced the same thing – I guess I’ll miss that but I will continue, as I have in the past, to be involved with them -…I won’t miss the shoes!!!”
Was he ready for the ceremony?
”I guess so…. I even know the song”.

HERE COME THE QUEEN!
Urban lip synched a show stopper: "Under a Big Top (that's where I want to be),” but most were wondering where the – went “I am so tucked I could f—myself”
Panzi demonstrated the assignment she gave the contestents: to sing Happy Birthday Mr President as Marilyn Monroe “don’t laugh ..if she were alive today she would look
just like this”
The fabulous Shirley Shapiro telling Bella
"Are you kidding? I don’t sing!"
what a trouper - she sounds just like Panzi
Oozing into it
Sing???Watch where you poke that
I’m not really a singer……..
She gave it a try
Ann Pheternine was not buying it –
She lapsed into a hip hop rap that
underscored the generation gap
Beach was sincere and managed to disguise
her natural basso voce
Smart girl…singing to the real President!
What a group!!! Not one with talent.
“I can’t hear you….”
A polite clap for the winner (except the gal on the left)
“I am so EXCITED! I am looking forward to ‘The Greatest
Shows on Earth’ and working with the Arts Project to help this be the best
Here’s the crown……….
And here’s some advice
HAIL TO THE NEW HOMECOMING QUEEN,
