Showgirl reunion



SUZETTE Shaw (nee Pitt) travelled from Sydney this weekend to join 35 other former miss showgirls to celebrate and remember Grafton shows of the past.

"When I received the invite in the mail, I knew I wanted to attend, I was showgirl in 1962 and it was such a great experience," she said.

The current entrants for the 2006 Miss Showgirl quest Ashleigh McSkimming, Jessica Moran and Melanie Stewart met Suzette yesterday and spoke about why they wanted to be crowned.

"My sisters and mother all were Grafton showgirls so it's a tradition," Ms Moran said.
