Miss Virginia Recital



Once again the 11th Annual Miss Virginia Recital was held at the lovely home of Don and Alvene Buckley, who graciously invited guests into their home. The event raises money each year for Miss Virginia scholarships. It is attended by beauty queens past, present, and hopefully future.
