LONG BEACH - The 2007 Junior Miss Loyalty Court is made up of several girls from Ocean Park and Long Beach Elementary School, as well as one girl who is home schooled.
These girls are in the fifth grade and are already working hard. The group meets on Tuesday nights where the focus is about community service, patriotism and working cooperatively with their peers as well as business people in the community.
This year's court has chosen to focus their community service project on feeding the hunger and helping the local food banks. They have titled their project, The "If You Can Spare It; We Can Share It" Food Drive. Letters are being sent out to many local businesses in hopes that each candidate will be able to place a decorated donation box in their business.
They will be selling the white teddy bears with blue and red stars on them again this year. The bears are $5 each and all proceeds go to help buy additional items needed for the local food bank.
Coronation for the Junior Miss Girls will be April 20 at the Long Beach Elementary School.
