See CALENDAR Page 3C Said, "1 D0!" at Morgan View. Farm etty CantreU of Warner Robins is also known as Miss America 2016. She is the first Miss Georgia to win the title of Miss America since Neva Jane Fickling was crowned Miss America 1953. As of April 13 Betty has another new title, Mrs. Betty Maxwell. Although she holds many titles (singer, speaker, author, etc), I think she loves VICKI "Mrs. Maxwell" the best. She and Spencer Maxwell, whose family moved to south Monroe County in 2005, met on Tinder just three months before she won the Miss Georgia title in 2015. Spencer is a Citadel graduate and a former member of the Monroe County Sheriff's SWAT team. After passing on her Miss America crown at the 2017 Miss America pag- eant, CantreU announced via social media that she and Maxwell were engaged and moving to Nashville to pur- sue her country music career. Betty says she exchanged her diamond encrusted crown for an engage- ment ring of even more excit- SMITH ing bling. Renee Jones was contacted by Betty and Spencer in December about the use of Morgan View Farm for the wedding reception. She and her husband, Allen Jones, own and operate Morgan View Farm, located just north of Bolingbroke at the corners of Highway 41 and Shi Road. Renee teaches horseback riding lessons, boards horses and rents out the farm on weekends for weddings and events. It accommodates approxi- mately 350-400 guests. Renee was delightfully surprised and honored to not only host the venue but recommend the other vendors, such as the caterer and photographer. With only a few months notice, they sprang into action to pull together one of the most beautiful and largest receptions held so far at Morgan View Farm. Working dosely with Betty and Spencer's mothers and the wedding planner, Liz Brown, Renee said she was not swayed by the task and went to work preparing for the big day - Friday the 13th of April. I went to help Renee and Allen with any task needed that evening.
