Special Waitress Teresa Hills was challenged by her table sing “I’m a Little Teapot,” with motions included, by her table. And she accepted. Such was the environment of the Celebrity Dinner put on by Jade Scott and Elayna Hasty.
Patrons gathered at Miller’s Country Kitchen in West Unity to partake in the fun of the event, roughly fifty in number. They were treated to a festive evening powered by the vibrantly youthful personalities of Scott and Hasty.
Scott, the reigning Junior Miss Montpelier, has been working with the Tennessee Hugs organization to collect shoes for those in need throughout the world. Going into the evening, she had 474 pairs of flip flops in her possession, nearly halfway toward her goal of 1,000. With several guests arriving at Miller’s with footwear to donate, it’s quite likely Scott has crossed the 500 pair mark already.
For Hasty, her hope was to raise money for G.A.B. Girls, an anti-bullying organization which the young girl founded. After moving to Montpelier from Toledo in first grade, she found herself the victim of hazing from a group of girls. But it was the bullying suffered by a friend, so intense that said friend is now home schooled, that led Hasty, the current Junior Miss Williams County, to form G.A.B. Girls.
The simple fact that both girls have gone so far out of their way to find a way to help people, and completely on their own accord, demonstrates why it is that they were drawn together. That so many showed up in support of their respective causes demonstrates just how impressive these young ladies truly are.
Serving those in attendance were five special waitresses for the evening. Hillis was joined by Shelley Duran, Jody Smith, Miss Edgerton Hannah Herman, and Teen Miss Williams County Morgan Mitchell in bringing the people their drinks and food, as well as honoring an occasional request from their respective tables.
Overall, the evening was fun, festive, and meaningful, a unique combination, not unlike the combination of hosts who put the dinner together.
