It was a dainty day as pretty pageant girls entered Camellia Rose Tea Room and Boutique. 2012 Strawberry Court members sat at a table with the Strawberry Queen, Chelsea Bowden, sipping fine teas and munching on tasty treats during ‘Tea with the Queen.’
Their hats were as extravagant as Chelsea’s crown was dazzling. At the next table, Barbara Bowden and Ruby Jean Redman chatted. Both women are past queens and grandmothers of Chelsea. Pam Bowden, Chelsea’s mother was proud her daughter was carrying on the tradition.
