"The Ms. Senior California Pageant is about empowering and inspiring women over 60 and others to 'BE THE BEST THEY CAN BE, LIVE THEIR DREAMS AND LET IT SHINE!' The Pageant has changed my life and now I have a bigger voice to go out and inspire other women in 'The Age of Elegance' to get those dusty dreams out of the closet, dust them off, live their dreams and inspire others to do the same."
-Elisabeth Howard, winner of Ms. Senior Long Beach 2012
Ms. Senior California 2012 Queen,
Ms. Senior America 2012 Queen
"It was magical! The excitement of the rehearsal and the backstage preparations, the wonderful ladies who also competed, and the talented ladies who helped with the pageant, the former queens, the current queen - it was just dazzling! The deal was sealed; I decided at that pageant that I wanted to be part of this group of incredible women, forever!
Many of the ladies I have met have become woven into the fabric of my life. Pieces that were missing have been found. Pieces that were broken have been mended. I could have never guessed that those two days would change my life in so many ways and I am so grateful that it has."
-Barbara Henrichsen, contestant in Long Beach
