NAM queens can get quite a bit done when they have a weekend to spend together, and that holds true for the Iowa state royalty. The girls met up in Des Moines and started their weekend on Thursday with a meeting with the governor and a tour of the capital building.
 
On Friday they had an interview at a news station in Des Moines, Great Day, and after that they visited the Blank Children's Hospital and donated some supplies.
The girls finished off the weekend with a group photo shoot.

She managed to gather a grand total of 80 1/2 pounds of produce! Veronica Beauchamp and her family then drove to Moapa, Nevada to personally deliver the food and help feed the animals at Roos N More Zoo!
