Elana Marie Klopfstein, 8, has been chosen as a state finalist in the National American Miss Washington Pageant.

The pageant, open to girls 7 to 9, will take place Aug. 28 through 30 at the Hilton Hotel, 300 112th Ave. S.E., Bellevue.

The Washington pageant winner will receive $1,000, and will compete in the national pageant at Disneyland.

Klopfstein is the daughter of Larry and Tammy Klopfstein of Kent. Her hobbies include ice skating, dance, roller blading, bicycling and chess. She also enjoys reading, summer camps and visits to the science center.

Companies sponsoring her include Captures.com and Pearson Chiropractic.

Meeting slated on underage drinking

Experts who work to prevent children from drinking alcohol will give advice to parents and others interested in stopping underage drinking at a Town Hall meeting from 6:30 to 8 p.m. April 2 at the Council Chambers at Kent City Hall, 220 Fourth Ave. S.

The meeting is sponsored by the Kent Police Department, the Kent Drinking Driver Task Fore and the Kent Police Youth Board.

Anyone who wants to help prevent underage drinking is invited, although the experts will focus the discussion to provide steps to help the parents of students in the fifth through eighth grades.

Parents are invited to bring their children (grades 5 through 8) to participate in fun activities to be offered during the Town Hall meeting.

Pre-registration is encouraged.

Call 253-856-5883 or e-mail Stacy Judd of the Kent Police at sjudd@ci.kent.wa.us.
