Please plan on attending the first annual Mr. TR pageant. It will be held Thursday, February 15, at 7:30 PM, in the high school gym. We have several competing for the title. There are three categories: dress (yes, actual dresses), talent, and interview questions. It is sure to be a very entertaining night!
