It sure has been a very busy start to the year for our 2019 Royalty and we are 4 rodeos in to the season! Keep reading to see what our titleholders have been doing since officially taking over in February!
Miss ORA 2019, Haley Linder
Wow! How is it already June?! This year has been flying by! In January, I attended the Miss Rodeo USA pageant and was able to watch Heather Morrison be crowned. I also volunteered at the Dazzling Divas event for the Children’s Miracle Network. February was the official start to my reign at the ORA Awards Banquet. We had a royalty photo shoot with sponsor, Rockin Rodeo Creations. I loved hanging out with Alexis and Jacie and it made me excited for the summer ahead!
In March, Jacie and I rode in the Rolla St. Patrick’s Day Parade. It was a blast throwing candy to the crowds of people! Shannon and I made the trip down to Branson to our amazing sponsor, Montana Silversmith’s for a shopping spree. Wow, their jewelry does make a girl feel like a queen! At the end of March, Shannon, Meghan, and I made a trip up to Iowa for Heather Morrison’s coronation party.
April was super busy weekend after weekend! It started with an appearance at an enchanted tea party hosted by my talented photography sponsor, Amy Webber. The ORA Royalty had our own dinner party where we crowned the first ever Mrs. ORA, Ashley Jost. Then I cooked breakfast at the Ronald McDonald House with Cookin’ Crowns. April was also the kick off to rodeo season in Humansville! May flew by with rodeos in St. Clair and Desloge. St. Clair was extra fun as my family made the trip down from Chicago! June is full of rodeo weekends and I can’t wait! See you in Raymondville!
Until next time.
Miss Teen ORA 2019, Alexis Mantonya
Rodeo update here we come! So far being your 2019 Miss Teen has been crazy fun, it’s included getting thrown off and eating dirt at the first rodeo in Humansville! But, the Bronc riding judge scored me 72 points so what a win! Can’t forget the long road trips with my family to them that’s also a blast. Meeting everyone so far has been amazing and I can’t wait to continue building relationships with everyone that is apart of the ORA!
Jr Miss ORA 2019, Jacie Jost
I have been able to be involved in some pretty awesome things since I have become JR MISS. First I was able to get out in to my community and visit my local nursing home for Nail day during Nail day we painted nails and visited, also while I was there I was able to attend their Easter party. I enjoyed visiting with them and can’t wait to go back for another Nail Day.
Next was St. Clair rodeo where we started a Lollipop fundraiser. I enjoyed getting out into the crowd and visiting with everyone. St. Clair is where I received my chaps and I love them so much! Desloge Rodeo we did a tribute to the Military with the flags it was probably my favorite rodeo so far for this year.
At Desloge I was asked to come to Licking to the PRCA rodeo there to promote the ORA. I took the opportunity and went to Licking I had a weekend to remember. I was able to sign autographs and pass out handouts to promote the ORA rodeos. While I was there I was able to meet Miss Rodeo Missouri Kaitlyn Ayers. I was able to participate in Military night there as well and was able to carry the P.O.W flag. Kaitlyn and I pushed livestock together Friday and Saturday night. Saturday during the day I was able to be in town for the parade and activities while I was there I promoted the ORA and then Kaitlyn and I rode in the parade together.
Cant wait to see everyone soon!
