Allison George wins Miss St. Mark Noel Pageant

15 year old Allison George from Soufriere has won the Miss St. Mark Noel Pageant which was held on Tuesday evening at Scotts Head.

George edged out five other contestants to take the title winning the awards for best talent and the best evening wear along the way.

First runner up was Chisma John Baptiste 14, from Soufriere and Evonna Renault, 15 from Scotts Head received the second runner up spot.

Other awards went to the following contestants: Shernelle Alexander received the best casual wear, Chrisma John Baptiste got the best in evening wear and the best in casual wear went to Malika Williams. The other participant was Shania Tavernier.

Main organizer and one of the sponsors of the event, US-based Dominican, Jeff Bellot, told Dominica News Online (DNO) that the show’s objective was to reunite the three communities after the recent general election.

He said all went well, and they are thinking of expanding to the neighboring community of Pointe Michel.

“It went pretty well actually,” he said. “We had a lot of people at the show and it was so good that I think we are going to do it every year. After almost two decades we never had that show and the turnout was so excellent.”

“My goal next year is to get Pointe Michel involved, so we are trying to expand it to be bigger and better.”

The contestants performed in four segments: the opening round, casual wear, evening wear and talent.

    While I welcome the organiser’s foresight in putting together such an event to harmonise the Parish of St Mark, the main village and parish’s hub SOUFRIERE seems always to lag behind in anything progressive affecting our community. The gov’t continues to ignore the once productive village, in fact the ‘bread basket’ of the Parish, in terms of job creation via Elrose & Co. Nothing productive takes place in SOUFRIERE – a disenfranchise people, no jobs, no resource centre, no playing field, no youth creativity, no adault resourcefulness and the list, goes on and on.
    Irrespective of painting this gloomy picture (honest reality), the villege of SOUFRIERE is blessed with natural resources but the gov’t keeps ignoring it in its plans to create economic growth and prosperity for D/ca. Beside the natural wonders of the sulfur springs, SOUFRIERE village possesses one of D/ca’s iconic fortitudes in the old Elrose & Co factory, which lies in ruin – the making a 5 star hotel just awaits investors.

      Serves them right as Soufriere is so ProLabour that they cannot see what is happening to the villsge

      The Labour Party does nothing for Soufriere apart from providing them with the pre-election crap.

      Do not cry for them as they have made their bed so they should lie in it

      The government treats Soufriere with contempt as they are confident that no matter how the village is overlooked they still vote for labour.

    While it is important to encourage young people to find their places in life and boost their confidence, i believe people organizing pageants during the Christmas season and calling it miss noel, has no moral fiber in them and as such are destroying our society. The birth of Christ has to be seen for what it is,the Savior who came to teach us how to live with each other and eventually died to bring us salvation, we do not think when we put up shows of bacchanal, in the name of our Savior titling it miss noel, that is direct provocation to our lord meaning Satan is at work and need to be condemned in all forms.
