Senior high girls sought for Apple Blossom Cotillion

High school senior girls in the communities served by Springfield Medical Care Systems and Springfield Hospital are invited to participate in the 58th annual Apple Blossom Cotillion.  One will join the select group of Apple Blossom queens.

This special community event has become a unique tradition and a rite of passage for area young people.  Girls and their escorts present themselves and perform with and without their escorts. They are also interviewed by a panel of judges

The theme for this year’s production is “A Thriller Evening – Cotillion Style,” featuring songs performed by Michael Jackson.  The directors of the 2014 Cotillion are Tammy Farmer and Lisa Rushton. The master of ceremonies for the 15th consecutive year is Larry Kraft, director of development for SMCS.

Proceeds from the event are used for the Dr. E. Sherburne Lovell Health Career Award and to benefit the hospital and community health centers of SMCS.

Weekly rehearsals start Sunday, Jan. 5, and culminate in the crowning of the Apple Blossom queen and her court on Saturday, May 3, 2014 at Riverside Gymnasium in Springfield.

Applications are available at and at area high schools.  Applications must be received by Dec. 9.
