PITTSBORO — Friends, family and residents cheered Friday as Kit Fink was crowned “2019 Ms. Cambridge Hills” at the assisted living center.

The 2nd annual pageant drew 13 competitors from amongst residents of Cambridge Hills. Dressed in evening gowns, they were escorted by family and friends to meet the judges, each answering a question posed by a staff member. Three judges, some of them pageant winners themselves and part of the North Carolina Senior America program, made their selections based on their overall impression of each contestant.

Each contestant came before the judges to the accompaniment of a self-selected piece of music. Country and early rock and roll were some of the genres selected.

Each contestant offered a brief statement, giving a history of their lives and careers. A variety of careers were represented, such as teacher, homemaker and being the owner of a motel.

The “question and answer” portion of the program was exciting, as it was an opportunity to hear personal ideas and feelings from the contestants.

Asked what she is grateful for, contestant Carrie Campen said, “I’m grateful to be 99. I’m looking forward to 100.” Campen was named Ms. Enthusiastic.

Maryanne Browning was asked, “If you were a flower, what sort would you be?”

“I’d be a sunflower,” she answered, “and spread sunshine to all my friends.”

Kit Fink was asked, “What is your greatest accomplishment?”

“That I raised three kids,” Fink said.

Fink won the pageant while being escorted to the event by one of her children, Becky Fricke. Fink is a musician and singer, and passed the talent to her daughter, who sang with her band during the after-pageant party.
