“Becky and Jerry Flowers were a perfect choice for this year’s King and Queen,” said Tina Garrett, 2016-17 president of the Junior Auxiliary of Winona. “Both Becky and Jerry are very active in supporting the youth of this community. The Junior Auxiliary of Winona would like to thank Jerry and Becky Flowers for serving as this year’s Charity Ball King and Queen. We would also like to thank them for all they have done and do for the children in our community.”
“My wife, Becky, and I were so honored to be asked to be king and queen by the Junior Auxiliary,” said Winona Mayor Jerry Flowers. “The both of us have always tried to be an asset to the community by working with the kids through summer baseball and softball, by Becky being president at one time of the Winona Business Association and with the both of us helping with the 4th of July celebration, and all other activities by the community. The Winona Junior Auxiliary are a very hard-working group of young ladies that give a lot of their time with Charity Ball, Angel Tree, etc. Becky and I are very proud to be a part of a community that gives so much back to the less fortunate.”
