Gorgeous Grandma Breakfast Winners
Episcopal SeniorLife Communities celebrated its 2nd Annual Gorgeous Grandma Celebration on the morning of July 23, 2010. ESLC hosts a Gorgeous Grandma Contest during June and July to invite kids ages 5-13 to write about why they think their grandma is gorgeous. Entries were judged based on creativity, clarity, and thoughtfulness. Each winner brought his or her gorgeous grandma, along with a guest of choice to a formal buffet breakfast. The 2010 Gorgeous Grandmas were: Tina Arpon, Rayvonnia Haygood, Marilyn McCrank, Joan McGillicuddy, Joyce Anita Miller, Kay Quinn, Mary Reabold, and Ethel Walters. The 2010 Gorgeous Grandma Contest Winners included: Rayana Deleon, Ellington Hall, Brennan Hong, Molly Hong, Andrew Korts, Yalexcia Mcfield, McKinley Anita Miller, Tia Rivera, Miguel Torres, and Valerie Viau.

All winners and their grandmas were presented with a special certificate of recognition for celebrating this special day! Here, Yalexcia Mcfield displays her certificate proudly.
McKinley Anita Miller was the 2nd place winner in the 5-7 age group. She said her grandma, Joyce Anita Miller, is gorgeous "because she does her hair at least once a week and she always has lunch ready before you even walk in the door!" McKinley even wrote a poem about her grandma! (pictured left)
Valerie Viau was the 1st place winner in the 5-7 year old category. She says her grandma, Marilyn McCrank, is gorgeous because "she does lots of church work and she will always help people who need it." (pictured right)
One of our first place winners in the 8-10 age group was Ellington Hall. His grandma, Rayvonnia Haygood, is gorgeous because she helps out at school AND she even lets him skateboard in her basement. (pictured left)

The 1st place winner in the 10-13 age group was Yalexcia Mcfield. She says her grandma, Ethel Walters, is gorgeous because "she has the softest skin in the world without creams or lotions!" (pictured left)
One very special grandma, Kay Quinn, was nominated by three of her grandchildren, Miguel Torres, Molly Hong, and Brennan Hong. "She is a game person and wears pretty earrings and necklaces. Nana comes to a lot of things at our school!" (pictured right)
