The Brundidge Business Association is accepting entries for the Miss and Little Miss Brundidge Pageant on April 15. The deadline for entry is April 3.

Laterah Baxter, pageant director, said an interest meeting will be at 6 p.m. March 30 at Brundidge City Hall.

“The interest meeting will be a time for questions about the pageant such as amount of time involved and how the pageant is judged. It is also a time to volunteer with the pageant,” Baxter said. “This year, the BBA has added a baby division. Hopefully, it will generate a lot of interest and that will probably be a topic of interest at the meeting.
