Organizers revive local pageants
Two ex-participants prepare for “Miss Ashland” and “Miss Hopkinton”
To Paula Baccari and Lindsey Grassey, beauty comes from within. After all, they were voted “Miss Congeniality’’ during their own pageant days in Natick years ago. They’ve walked the walk in 4-inch heels, and as they prepare a small group of girls to compete later this month for the titles of Miss Ashland and Miss Hopkinton, they’re pushing for confidence, kindness, and community service.
