Excitement filled the air on Friday, February 12th, at 3:00pm as 18 of the greatest residents had their moment in the spotlight as they competed for the title of Mr. and Mrs. Lake City 2016.

"Each year this pageant gives us an opportunity to share our most shining assets - our residents and their wonderful personalitlies with the community," said Nicole McCoy, Activities Director of Lake City Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.  "By having the Mr. and Mrs. Lake City Pageant right here in our residents' home, people who do not get the opportunity to visit a long-term care facility too often can come and enjoy a fun time.  They can share in the festivities with "our family" and get the thrill of their lives in the process!"

Competing for Mr. and Mrs. Lake City were 18 of our remarkable residents and for Prince and Princess 10 of our awesome staff members.  These contestants were judged by a panel of civic and community leaders using several criteria combined with the popularity votes of their peers. 

Assisting as sponsors of this year's pageant are New Vision Christian Church, All Star Trophies, Everything-N-Then Some, Event Planning and Catering, and Clayton State University.


"We are very fortunate to live in a community where people are interested in gaining a better understadning of the lives and contributions of our nursing home residents," Executive Director, Melanie DuPont states.  Events such as The Mr. and Ms. Lake City Pageant, show others the love and positive attitude toward life that we live in the long term health care profession experience every day.



This year's Ms. Lake City, Betty Smiley pictured above, will be competing in the 2016 Ms. Georgia Nursing Home Pageant on May 21, 2016, at the Marriott Evergreen Resort in Stone Mountain, Georgia.  The event will feature local pageant winners from nursing homes across the state.  Congratulations to all of our contestants and Good Luck Queen Betty Smiley as you pursue the next level!!
