Under almost ideal conditions, the 2011 Pualski County 4-H Fair Parade was held last night in Winamac.

“The most exciting thing in 4-H is not the projects or winning a trophy, it’s meeting other people and stepping out and showing other people what you can do and what your talents are,” said 4-H Achievement Royalty winner, Erica Putt.

“I’m in Junior Leaders and we take a lot of trips and meet a lot of people and I’m also a Camp Counselor so I can be a model for younger children,” said Veronica Leman, also a part of this year’s 4-H Royalty. “I also won Showman last year which is also a very big accomplishment.”

Stacy Gudas

This year’s Pulaski County Queen is Stacy Gudas and she drove a convertible in the parade provided for her use by Jim Dobson Ford.

“I was shocked when I was announced the winner of the pageant,” said Gudas. “I was really excited and I am excited to represent Pulaski County. When I was in third grade, I got to dance with the Miss Pulaski contestants when I was in Hip Hop and that was a lot of fun. I’ve always gone to watch it at the Fair with my mom.”
