Willow Trace Nursing Center in Butler had a beauty pageant for residents Thursday.
Twelve ladies competed for the title of Ms. Willow Trace.
The ceremony is formal, complete with an emcee and trophies.
92-year-old Viola Thomas won the title.
"Life doesn't end just because they're here in a nursing facility and they can go on to participate, show their interests and show their beauty," said administrator Kenyatta Pearson. "I hope they get to know that they're still loved. And we're willing to help beautify their every part of life."
Thomas will go on to compete in the Alabama Nursing Home Association Pageant in Birmingham.
