The Entre Nous Club is again sponsoring its “Little People in Revue.” It will be held at 4 p.m., Saturday, in the Southern Middle School auditorium.
Throughout the years, the Entre Nous Club sponsored a project to raise funds for scholarships and civic activities. Named the Miss Entre Nous Pageant during the 1950s & 60s, this project allowed local youth to display their talents and expertise, as they raised money to be used for scholarships and civic service. Keeping the same purposes in mind, this major project was later renamed Little People in Revue. For several years, Little People in Revue only involved elementary age girls, with the one raising the most money being crowned the Queen of the event. Later, Little People in Revue involved young gentlemen; therefore, the youth who raised the most money for scholarships were crowned King & Queen, as the club currently does.
Little People in Revue has never been an annual project of the club. It has occurred periodically over a span of years. A special guest appearance at this year’s event will be made by the Northern Middle School cheerleading squad.
The Entre Nous Club was organized in June, 1946. In addition to the club being involved in civic activities and community projects, a major goal of the club is to provide funds for the awarding of scholarships for worthy students planning to extend their education beyond high school.
