Ellie wishes to express her sincere gratitude to Queen-elect Caitlyn for allowing her to share in this special occasion, and to the Floresville Peanut Festival Association for this opportunity. She would also like to thank President Rhea Nell Rogers for her support, Hilary and Pat Reile for a beautiful gown design, and finally, Marietta Matheaus and Kathy Sawers for their amazing talent in constructing the gown.
