Congratulations Ladies, I know you will represent Santee wonderfully. I just love the photos of the little ones, there are just so cute. Thank you Sonrise Church for allowing the pageant to be held at your place, you have always been a great supporter of our community.

Thank you Janalee for that catch! Correction has been made, sorry for that slip. Late night posts must be getting to me... Saw the duo at this morning's Santree Fest, they were looking great at their first event, even after the big night!

Congratulations to the winners. I feel that mayor Voepel was very inappropriate in what he had to say. "This mayor gig is really a hard thing, walking around here with gorgeous women. My gosh. It's just really hard to concentrate" -Mayor Voepel. The miss Santee who was crowned was only 17, and the teen was even younger. A bit creepy, since these are teenage girls.

Donna, I am sure the Mayor meant nothing disrespectful, he is a father, after all. The Mayor does have a sense of humor, though some have a difficult time seeing it. Please don't make something disgusting out of a piece of humor.

Kathy I do agree with you on this one!! My Daughter was last years Miss Teen Santee and I must say, in the Mayors defense, he is a nice guy with a quirky sense of humor and has always treated the queens with the utmost respect and dignity!!! He has a sense of humor that I think some may not always get, but he always means well and just wants everybody to have as much fun as he is......and there is nothing wrong with that!!!! The new queens will have a fabulous time representing the city of Santee as my daughter did, and will meet many of the wonderful people of this community!! Great job Maria and Savannah!!
