Dolores Wadsworth, of Shingle Springs, was ecstatic when her named was announced as the 2013 El Dorado Rose at the El Dorado County Fair on June 13.

“I am so happy,” Wadsworth, 64, said. “I am just thrilled. I’m going to make El Dorado County prouder than we are already are.”

Dianna Row, 68 from Placerville, will serve as the Rose Court for 2013.

Wadsworth was nominated by the American Legion Auxiliary in Placerville.

She also won the Best Reproduction Costume.

“It was an 1880s dress with the snaps on of the front,” said Wadsworth. “They didn’t have zippers in those days.”

Rowe won the Most Authentic Costume trophy.

“This is the greatest honor I have ever received,” Wadsworth said prior to the competition.

In the June 3 issue of the Mountain Democrat, Wadsworth stated that “if I were to be chosen to be the El Dorado Rose, I would always be available for any and all functions where I was needed. I am very friendly, happy, always with a smile on my face.”

Wadsworth is a member of the Historical Railroad Society.

She was a Dolly Parton impressionist and look-a-like for 15 years and enjoyed performing the country star’s songs from 1986 to 2001.

“I worked with a Kenny Rogers look-a-like and we were a great team,” Wadsworth said. “We did over a 1,000 shows in California and overseas.”

Wadsworth enjoys home decorating, making jewelry and crafts and yard sales.

Row is a member of the Placerville Shakespeare Club.

She said she enjoyed running for El Dorado Rose.

“I found that it was a good experience,” Row said. “It was a lot of fun and exposed me to different people and folks. My overall experience was pleasant.”

During the 2013 El Dorado Rose pageant, past Roses, Rose Court members and Golden Roses were presented and county officials and El Dorado Rose judges were introduced.

Pageant director and 2006 El Dorado County Rose Carole Burnley read the candidates’ résumés as they  were escorted onto the stage and promenaded before an enthusiastic audience in the theater.

With the announcement of the 2013 Rose, Sharon Mc David, 2012 Rose, placed the ceremonial sash on Wadsworth and the Gold Rush Chorus sang “My Sweet Irish Rose” but inserted “El Dorado” in place of “Irish.”

Ruby Nixon was selected as Golden Rose.

Rod Avery served as emcee of the event.

The program closed with the pageant’s signature song “When You’re Smiling.”
