Goober Gazette: Page Emelie Baumann
Emelie Elizabeth Baumann is proud to have been selected by Queen-elect Caitlyn May to serve as a page in the Court of America’s Majestic Beauty. Emelie is the daughter of Steve and Olga Baumann and the great-granddaughter of Leslie and Nelda Baumann of Floresville. She is also the granddaughter of Fannie Rethaber of Stockdale and Luciano and Socorro Suchil of Robstown. She is the proud sister of Michael Candela, who serves in the U.S. Army and is currently stationed in Afghanistan, and Cristian Baumann, a junior at Floresville High School and a member of the Mighty Tiger Band.
Emelie is a fourth-grader at Floresville South Elementary. She is a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, where she participates as an altar server and is a member of the Faith Formation Children’s Ministry. Emelie loves camping at Garner State Park, swimming, bowling, shopping, and playing with her cocker spaniel, Scooter. She also enjoys her dance class at Hermann Sons Dance in Poth.
Emelie’s family has proudly served in past Peanut Festival courts. Her father was an acolyte in the Court of Our Forefathers’ Land; her Aunt Reba Baumann was in the Court of Our Farming Heritage; her grandmother, Sharron Baumann-Rethaber, was in the Court of Spanish Gold; and her Uncle Larry Baumann was in the Court of Harvest Treasures.
Emelie would like to thank Queen-elect Caitlyn May and the Peanut Festival Association for allowing her the honor to serve her community in the 68th annual Peanut Festival court. She would also like to thank her seamstress, Marietta Matheaus, for sewing the beautiful gown she will proudly wear on the night of coronation.
