I found out a few days ago that my friend Sandi Johnson is running for Shaker Queen at the Shakerfest this weekend! Way to go, Sandi! Barrier Island Girl - who has never endorsed anyone to my recollection - endorses you!
For those that don't know Sandi, she's one of those special people who volunteers tirelessly! She splits her time between many local organizations and causes here on the island, belonging to the Woman's Club, Optimists Club, Pensacola Beach Chamber of Commerce, Pensacola Beach Advocates, and the Krewe of Wrecks. Any time a call goes out for volunteers, Sandi steps up.
Votes are $1.00 apiece and the lady who brings in the most votes will be crowned Shaker Queen at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 13th. All proceeds (yep, 100%) from the votes will go to non-profit groups and charity. In fact, you may even write in your preference! I wrote my personal check out to the Pensacola Beach Elementary School and noted Sandi Johnson for Shaker Queen.
You may drop by the Sandshaker any time before Sunday mid-afternoon to cast your vote, or let me know if you prefer to contact Sandi directly. You may also read more about the event by checking out the current issue of Island Times.
