Fond mem­o­ries for Donna

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

DONNA Baker’s most mem­o­rable moments as Queens­land’s 2013 Miss Show­girl came on her last two days in the job.

She sashed Tee­bar’s So­phie Hughes in as her re­place­ment on Fri­day, and on the Thurs­day?

“I got en­gaged at the Bris­bane Ex­hi­bi­tion,” Ms Baker said.

“It was over­look­ing the cen­tre ring; very ro­man­tic and a very big sur­prise.”

Fi­ancee Kris Din­gle had held off for a pas­sion­ate mo­ment, with cen­tre ring be­ing spe­cial as both of them show Red Bran­gus stud cat­tle, she ex­plained.

Ms Baker, the Bur­nett’s fifth Queens­land Miss Show­girl, has many fond mem­o­ries of her year rep­re­sent­ing Queens­land agri­cul­tural shows.

“It’s the first time in the North Bur­nett to have two (Miss Showgirls) in a row,” Ms Baker said.

“I couldn’t be any more proud for the sash to go to another girl from the North Bur­nett.”

But Ms Baker’s life as Queens­land Miss Show­girl is not yet over.

“When you hand over the sash, there are still a lot of com­mit­ments; you have the ti­tle ‘for life’,” Ms Baker said.”
