Buena Vista Township Crowns New Miss Buena Vista 2017

On Sunday, March 5, 2017, Buena Vista Township Crowned its newest Queen Amanda Guzman of Landisville. The Villa Fazzolari Restaurant was packed with over 140 in the crowd including the 2015/2016 Miss Buena Vista Township, Ciarra Siking.

A panel of judges were wowed by all 8 of the girls performances which made it almost impossible to pick a winner. Alongside of the winner Amanda Guzman, 1st Runner Up Megan Burke of Minotola and 2nd Runner Up Tabatha Dalponte of Richland dazzled the audience with their grace, poise and talent. Two special recognitions were given out to the girls prior to the announcement of the winners.

The title of Miss Congeniality for this years event was awarded to Lillian Nelson of Richland for her unique and humorous personality throughout the pageant and practices.

The second award was given in the name of a past contestant Gina Durham who is remembered yearly at the pageant. The award recognizes one girl who demonstrated kindness, strength and belief in herself and others just as Gina did. This year the award was given with honor to Megan Burke.

The Buena Vista Township Special Events Committee were the host of the event along with Fazzolari Restaurant and Special Guest MC Nor Easter Nick Pitman of South Jersey News Today.

The afternoon was the perfect way to kick off the Township’s 150th Sesquicentennial Celebrations throughout the year. Also, March 5th was the actual Anniversary of the 1867 Founding of Buena Vista Township!
