Here are a few of the things going on in, or a short distance from South Logan County in the coming days.

Annual Pageant

The 60th annual Mr. and Miss BHS Pageants are set for Saturday, Jan. 13. The pageant, which features 14 Miss BHS and 13 Mr. BHS contestants, begins at 7 p.m. and will be held in the high school auditorium.

The pageant features talent competition for each of the Miss BHS contestants, who also model an evening gown for part of their overall score. In addition to interviews conducted for both male and female contestants earlier in the day, Mr. BHS contestants are also scored on stage presence.

Gavin Scanting and Lexi Danekas are the reigning title holders, both winning last year as juniors.

Tickets are $5 each and may be purchased in advance, or at the door. To purchase tickets in advance you can check in at the high school office to reserve seats.

The pageant is organized yearly by the school’s Beta Club.
