A happy smile from "Miss Gisborne 1964"

Six entrants contested the 1964 "Miss Gisborne" title, which was judged at a Candlelight Cabaret held in the War Memorial Hall by the co-organisers of the contest, the Waihirere Maori Club and the Gisborne Jaycees.
Winner of the title was 20-year-oid Gisborne hairdresser, Miss Patricia Hill, daughter of Mr and Mrs A. Hill, 179 Roebuck Road.
The entrants were required to parade in both evening wear and swimsuits, and to be interviewed briefly by the three judges, Mr Ernie De Suza, Mrs Jean Goodwin, and Miss June Irvine.
Miss Hill will now take part with other centre winners in a tour of New Zealand, climaxing with the "Miss New Zealand" contest in Dunedin, early in June.
