Small World
Mike Calhoun and Kelsey Cartwright (Miss Oklahoma) were both surprised to find themselves on the same flight returning from Los Angeles (to Tulsa) earlier this year. Kelsey had been in LA filming a Miss America reality show. Mike had been attending a class in Reno for the Washington County Rural Water District #5. Their families have been friends for years in Collinsville and they enjoyed the unplanned visit. Kelsey will be in Collinsville to lead the Christmas Parade Saturday (Dec. 13th). She will then participate in the Tulsa parade later the same day.
