How can it be August already? This summer is flying by! The highlight of the summer was traveling to Orlando to cheer on Miss New Hampshire’s Outstanding Teen at Miss America’s Outstanding Teen. Caroline was absolutely amazing and New Hampshire is so proud of her. Go #TeamCaroline!

I’ve also stayed busy participating in Miss New Hampshire local programs. Thank you to the Miss Portsmouth Area, Miss Rockingham County, and Miss Manchester volunteers for their hard work to provide scholarships. My student loans really appreciate it!

Another summer highlight was Princess Day with the Miss New Hampshire Organization at Boston Children’s Hospital. Roseann Holmes gave us a tour and introduced us to some new friends for crafts and playtime. It was really wonderful to spend a day at our local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to fully understand the power of the CMNH/Miss America Organization partnership. Every Miss America contestant at the local, state, and national level helps fundraise for CMNH to provide critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and charitable care.

You can help too! Miracle Treat Day is THIS Thursday, August 14th. Be sure to visit a Dairy Queen and purchase a Blizzard to celebrate their thirty year partnership with Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®. DQ has raised $100 million in support of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals® across North America!

If you can’t make it to Dairy Queen, you can always make a donation online at http://www.missamericaforkids.org/Donate/HowlandKat

Happy Month of Miracles!
