The event was changed from its traditional first Monday in June to Tuesday, to allow the Miss Kansas contestants to mingle with the 75’ers and join them for lunch. After eating, contestants will introduce themselves before hurrying off to begin rehearsal for performances on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at Pratt Community College.

Former contestants and/or titleholders will provide the entertainment.

St. Paul Lutheran Church at Natrona will prepare the meal. As always, cakes will be awarded to the oldest woman and man present, the youngest over the age of 75, the person whose birthday is closest to June 7, longest and shortest married, and people with the most children and grandchildren. Local businesses will also provide door prizes.

Members of the Pratt Police Department will be on hand to assist people getting out of and into cars.

The theme for the event is Fireworks/All American Girls.

Sharon Will heads the planning committee that also includes Stephanie Becker, Dorothy Furgason, Britt Jacks and Lyola Hatfield. The event has been made possible for 78 years by the generosity of businesses, organizations and individuals who donate money and their services.
