This color illustrated book has a distinctive mid-century feel as it follows Patty on her quest to become a majorette.

My sisters and I performed a baton twirling routine to "He Lives in You" at Miss Nebraska 2008 as a tribute to our brother Bobby who was killed in a car accident in 2003. We made up the routine that afternoon so it wasn't our best but we really enjoyed performing it.
