Best of Luck to the Miss Vacationland Program

Prior to being crowned Miss Ohio 1962 and Miss America 1963, Jacquelyn Mayer was the very first Miss Vacationland. While I am unsure how long Miss Vacationland originally ran, it is returning tonight to the Playmakers Civic Theatre in Port Clinton. The pageant begins at 7:30 p.m. and will feature Toledo news anchor Lauren Lowrey as the emcee; joining her onstage will be reigning Miss Ohio, Erica Gelhaus, former Miss Ohio, Melanie Murphy Miller and Miss Junior America, Emily Coursin.

According to the Miss Vacationland website they plan to award $3000 in scholarships, half of which will go to the winner. The following women are RUMORED to be competing. I must stress, this is an unconfirmed list found on a message board!
