The Newcastle and Renton communities are invited to meet and greet with Miss Washington 2012, Mandy Schendel, at a homecoming celebration on Aug. 25.
Schendel, a Newcastle resident and 2008 Hazen High School graduate, was crowned Miss Washington last month. She will compete in the Miss America Pageant in January.
The purpose of having a homecoming event for Miss Washington is to allow the local community that she came from to come and see her and wish her well as she travels the state for speaking events and prepares for the Miss America Pageant.
There will be food and entertainment at the event, which is free and open to the public.
The celebration takes place from 5-9 p.m. at the Barbee Mill Community Beach Club, 4205 Williams Ave. N., Renton.
